The grand Romantic ballet set in India, featuring spectacular sets and virtuoso performances.
The famous late-Romantic ballet to Ludwig Minkus’s music, telling the story of a beautiful Indian temple dancer, characterised by exquisite sets and replete with virtuoso performances, has been frequently staged at leading dance venues worldwide and hence is now becoming part of our company’s repertoire too. The story of ill-fated love, featuring spectacular sets and colourful costumes, is a real treat for those with a penchant for grand classical works, as well as a great challenge for the Czech National Ballet itself.
