Studio Spotlight: La Bayadère
Think Romeo and Juliet cornered the market on doomed love affairs? Not even close, as evidenced by a dance of forbidden romance called La Bayadère, a lavish ballet set in India that explores the tragic tale of a temple dancer and young warrior.
Before Ballet Arizona opens its 2016 production of La Bayadère at Symphony Hall on October 27, it’s giving people a chance to go behind the scenes during a Studio Spotlight event happening at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 14.
Inside the intimate 298-seat Dorrance Theatre at Ballet Arizona, 2835 East Washington Street, viewers can spend an hour watching rehearsals for La Bayadère and getting perspectives from Ballet Arizona’s artistic staff. There’s even Q&A time. Tickets cost $30. Visit balletaz.org.
