    Enjoyed my first time seeing a production of 'La Bayadere'

    The Royal Ballet has released the first performance in High Definition of 'La Bayadere'. The sets are spacious and extravagant, and costumes are authentic. The corps de ballet had strong synchronization, and the 'Kingdom of the Shades' scene was especially mesmerizing to watch. Tamara Roja as Nikiya is passionate, and a bit reserved; Carlos Acosta as Solor is powerful, but his facial expressions seemed strained; Marianela Nuñez as Gazmatti is seductive and graceful. Interviews with Tamara Rojo and members of the corps de ballet, and twenty minutes of rehearsal footage, may be of interest to ballet dancers. A disclaimer on the back of the DVD case indicates the use of strobe lighting, which appears in the 'Destruction of the Temple' scene.
