Performed as yet only by the Paris Opera Ballett, for which it was created in 1992, Nureyev’s La bayadère will be staged for the first time at La Scala with new sets and costumes by Luisa Spinatelli. This is an extraordinary debut for a sumptuous production, rich in virtuoso performances and variations. It concludes with a return to the purity of classical ballet, with the entire corps on stage in white tutus in the Kingdom of the Shades, a tableau that opened the way to the success of this ballet in the West and Nureyev’s shining star.

 

In consideration of the latest data on increasing Covid-19 spread, the Direction of Teatro alla Scala decided to cancel the performances of La bayadère scheduled for the 30 and 31 December and the 5, 7, 8, 12 and 13 January.

The Direction of Teatro alla Scala is working to find new dates. In the next few days all the audience will receive an email with instructions for the possible recovery on another date or the refund of tickets.

 

The performance of 22 January 2022 is dedicated to the Fondazione Francesca Rava.
