Ballet Arte Academy in Solana Beach presents the classical ballet ‘La Bayadere’

On Saturday, June 8, Ballet Arte Academy of Classical Ballet will perform “La Bayadere” at the David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre, at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Set in Royal India of the past, La Bayadere (the Temple Dancer) is a story of eternal love, mystery, fate and justice.

The ballet was first performed by the Imperial Ballet in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1877, and was originally staged by the French choreographer Marius Petipa to the music of Ludwig Minkus. A scene from the ballet, known as the KIngdom of the Shades, is one of the most celebrated excerpts in all of classical ballet.

Erlends Zieminch and Sara Viale, the directors of Ballet Arte Academy, cast all of their classical ballets using only students of the school. The advanced students take on the difficult choreography of the ballet’s principal characters and the younger students, beginning at 4 years of age, all have roles to dance. Adult students are also cast in all the productions.

La Bayadere will delight the eye with exotic scenery and costumes and excite the spirit with beautiful music, choreography and dancing.
