About

This Christmas, rediscover a monument of ballet history, recorded at the prestigious La Scala: La Bayadère, in the choreography by the great Rudolf Nureyev and under the direction of Manuel Legris, a former student of the Russian master! Premiered in imperial Russia in 1877, the work underwent numerous adaptations—not only in its choreography, but also in its score and its plotline—to suit the means and mores of the times following the Bolshevik Revolution. It was only in the 1960s that the ballet began to reach Western audiences—with the extraordinary Natalia Makarova staging excerpts and then a full production in the United States, and the legendary Nureyev bringing his version to France and the United Kingdom.
