    Beautiful ballet

    Out of all the many ballets I have seen, this one is my favorite. The plot is extremely interesting, the scenery is beautiful, the characters are multi-faceted, the dancing is breathtaking and emotive; everything about this ballet is done flawlessly.

    Russians in London

    While not the newest edition of La Bayadere by far, I will always adore this one, as it has nearly flawless casting. Asylmuratova is such a wonderful Nikiya; she is strong, sober, and dances with the perfect balance of technicality and smooth emotion. Irek Mukhamedov is a wonderful Solar; athletic, impressive, sometimes dense, but a good guy. And Darcey Bussell is and always will be the definitive Gamzatti for me. Her dancing fits the role perfectly, and I'd swear she was made to dance it. A wonderful staging, perfect casting, and my favorite edition.

    A Feat for the Royal Ballet

    La Bayadere, with music by Ludwig Minkus, shines in a new light in the Royal Ballet's production by Natalia Makarova.
    Altynai Asylmuratova and Darcey Bussell provide a spectacular performance, in both their technique and artistry. Asylmuratova transforms into a delicate creature, with near-perfect port de bras, and beautiful hyperextended arms. Bussell dances a virtuous Gamzatti, extremely dramatic in acting scenes, while very joyful in some dances. Irek Mukhamedov does a solid job of Solor, proving to be a brilliant partner for both Asylmuratova and Bussell, while showing true mastery of all of the technicalities and variations that are demanded in the ballet. Testuya Kumakawa dances a brilliant Bronze Idol; at times transfixing the viewer in awe of a human statue. In this production, the High Brahmin was selected immaculately, showing Dowell's dramatic and frightening acting ability. However, the corps de ballet does not represent the cleanness and perfection of the Russian version of La Bayadere, particularly in the first act (where it is clear that some fall out of their lines). Although at times lacking in the technique and together-ness of the corps de ballet, the ballet is carried on by it's stars. I definitely recommend this version of La Bayadere, both to who is new to classical ballet, and to avid ballet DVD collectors.
