La Bayadère

Last night I departed on a trip to India and watched a love quadrangle unfold between temple dancer, high priest, princess and noble warrior.  Yes, La Bayadère at the Met!  It was magical.  This ballet is one of my two faves.  The scenery is absolutely majestic.  The costumes are beyond whimsical.  But the dancing- the dancing transports you to another world.  It was the first time I watched soloist Hee Seo in a leading role (Nikiya the bayadère) and I must say she is now one of my favorites at ABT.  Watching her was entrancing!

Read a beautiful article and interview with Hee Seo here in Time Out NY
