Natalia Makarova's production of this 19th-century classic ballet brings an exotic world of temple dancers and noble warriors to life. Nikiya, a temple dancer, is in love with the warrior Solor. The High Brahmin also desires Nikiya, and when she rejects him, he plans to take revenge on Solor. When the High Brahmin tells the Rajah about Solor’s secret love, the Rajah decides that Nikiya, not Solor, should be killed. The Rajah and Gamzatti arrange for Nikiya to be killed by a snake bite. Despondent, Solor is filled with remorse and haunted by visions of Nikiya. The gods are angered and destroy the temple with all inside it. In the afterlife, Solor and Nikiya are finally united. Watch the trailer here.
