Ajkun Ballet Theatre’s La Bayadère in NYC, Saturdays & Sundays at 7:30pm from April 13 through April 28, 2024.

Journey Royal India with the timeless classic La Bayadère or the Temple Dancer, a fictional story of romance and pride set to a background of vivid costumes and elegant dancing created by Chiara Ajkun.

The intimate ambiance is stage for the immersive one-act show, where the audience sits feet away from the dancers and is free to take videos and pictures during the event and photos with the cast at the end of the performance.

Performed by the Ajkun Ballet Company on Sergei Khudekov’s libretto and music by Ludwig Minkus, the story of Nikiya, the Temple Dancer who rejects the High Brahmin for Solor only to see him marrying princess Gamzatti, comes to life with the intoxicating colors of fantastic India and the poise of the cast.

Nikiya suits Burbine’s ethereal quality, partnered by the attentive and nobly radiant Tafaj as Solor.
