Natalia Makarova’s production of this 19th Century classic ballet brings an exotic world of temple dancers and noble warriors to life.

Broadcast LIVE from the ROYAL OPERA HOUSE London



Orchestrated by JOHN LANCHBERRY

Marius Petipa’s fantasy, set in legendary India, 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.

    I do not wish to have a paypal a/c but it’s difficult to avoid and find it difficult to pay without getting “trapped’ into having one. how do I pay without doing so??

      Dear Bridget,

      I am the person on the Hall Committee that looks after the website. You do not have to have a PayPal account, nor are you ‘trapped’ into getting one. When you go to pay, you are offered the opportunity to continue as a guest rather than register for or use an existing PayPal account. As a guest, you then pay using a debit or credit card and it is treated as a one-off transaction.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards
