Natalia Makarova’s production brings an exotic world to life as it tells the
tale of a temple dancer and the prince who loves her but marries another.
The famous, moonlit ‘white act’ – The Kingdom of the Shades – is a corps
de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince’s lost love haunt
his mind. The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while
a bronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the
melody and moods of Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidity and
precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling.
