Choreography by NATALIA MAKAROVA after MARIUS PETIPA

Directed for Stage by OLGA EVREINOFF

Set by PIERLUIGI SAMARITANI

In their series of classical ballet productions from La Scala Arthaus releases a DVD recording of La Bayadére in the choreography by Natalia Makarova. Her version, based on the original 1877 creation by the great master of Russian classical ballet, Marius Petipa has become the standard since the famous Kirov Company made it popular worldwide.

It was filmed at the May 2006 revival of Makarova’s 1992 production for La Scala, Milan, and features two of international ballet’s star dancers – Svetlana Zakharova and Roberto Bolle. The Bayadère Nikiya is created by Svetlana Zakharova, a Ukrainian dancer, who grew up in the tradition of St Petersburg’s Maryinsky Ballet and is now one of the youngest ballerinas at Moscow’s Bolshoi Ballet and Roberto Bolle, the primo ballerino étoile in the Corpo di ballo del Teatro alla Scala, dances Solor, a brave, young nobleman.

The filming for this DVD recreates the atmosphere of a night at the wonderful La Scala opera house, while providing the viewer with a closer look at the dancers, their interpretation and their artistic endeavours.
