Mariinsky Ballet and Orchestra

Cal Performances

No company in the world dances the spellbinding "Kingdom of the Shades" scene in La Bayadère as brilliantly as Saint Petersburg's Mariinsky Ballet. The story of forbidden love and shocking betrayal, complete with a spectral voyage to the afterlife, performed with the unmatched refinement, dramatic poise, and flawless technique that defines this centuries-old cultural institution.

This is what SF/Arts curator Heather Desaulniers has to say about Mariinsky Ballet and Orchestra :

Cal Performances closes the month of October with a five-day engagement of the grand, full-length “La Bayadère,” performed by the world class Mariinsky Ballet and Orchestra. A Petipa narrative classic that dates back to the late 1800s, the dream/vision “Kingdom of the Shades” sequence is still one of the most visually stunning and impressive corps de ballet scenes.
