The ballet La Bayadere (1877) by Ludwig Minkus is one of the choreographic masterpieces of Marius Petipa, which adorns the classical repertoire of world theaters. La Bayadere is one of the most beloved ballets of the ingenious Rudolf Nureyev, our compatriot who made his first creative steps on the stage of the Bashkir Opera and Ballet Theater. He danced this part on various world stages, and in 1992 at the Grand Opera Rudolf Nureyev ended his career with his production of La Bayadere.
