Role debuts in »La Bayadère«

From 16 September, the ballet evening »La Bayadère« will once again transport audiences back to the kingdom of the Indian temple maiden. Here the warrior Solor and the temple dancer Nikija have sworn eternal love. However, the mighty Rajah wishes to wed Solor to his daughter. Bewitched by her beauty, Solor forgets his promise of love. Poor Nikiya is forced to dance at her lover’s engagement party – and dies tragically. But will the lovers meet again in the Realm of the Shades ...?

On 28 September and 2 October, Sangeun Lee, principal soloist of Semperoper Ballet, will for the first time inhabit the role of Nikiya in »La Bayadère«, performing the delicate temple dance. Dima Semionov will take on the role of Solor. In the performances on 21 and 26 September, Julian Amir Lacey, second soloist of Semperoper Ballett, will perform the role of Solor, accompanied by Gina Scott as the temple dancer.
