  • In their series of classical ballet productions from La Scala TDK releases a DVD recording of La Bayadère with Natalia Makarova's choreography. Her version, based on the original 1877 creation by Marius Petipa, has become the standard since the famous Kirov Company made it popular worldwide. The material for this DVD was filmed at the May 2006 revival of Makarova's 1992 production for Milan's La Scala and features two of international ballet's stars. 

  • The Bayadère Nikiya is created by Svetlana Zakharova, now one of the youngest ballerinas at Moscow's Bolshoi Ballet, while Roberto Bolle, the primo ballerino étoile in the Corpo di ballo del Teatro alla Scala, dances Solor. Zakharova and Bolle have previously appeared together as the protagonists in TDK's DVDs of the La Scala Swan Lake and Giselle. In the present production they are joined by the up-and-coming young French ballerina Isabelle Bruson dancing Gamzatti.

  • This DVD provides the viewer with a closer look at the dancers, their interpretation and their artistic endeavours, and includes an informative booklet essay by the eminent ballet critic Horst Koegler.

"The ballet undoubtedly holds very few secrets for Zakharova any longer, yet her approach remains agreeably fresh and even surprising. We already knew she is the supreme adagio ballerina, but there is no way to fault her in the allegro passages either, while changes in tempo are now beautifully controlled and musical. The short solo scene around the Sacred Fire before meeting with Solor was a pure marvel with her immaculate footwork and silken touch. The meeting itself, ravishing by its phrasing and musical grace, was a moment of pure bliss that one wanted to continue…"  DanceView Times
