Bolshoi Ballet: LA BAYADÈREDate Sunday January 11th, 2015 at 1:00pm
Running time 2h45
When the beautiful dancer Nikiya and the warrior Solor meet in secret, they swear eternal mutual fidelity. However, the High Brahmin, who is also in love with Nikiya, overhears them. He rushes to reveal their secret to the Rajah, who has decided that Solor will marry his beloved daughter Gamzatti.
La Bayadère (the word refers to an Indian temple dancer) is a key work in the classical repertoire and this is a magnificent production. The story of impossible love between Nikiya and Solor is set against the backdrop of a lush, mysterious India. Marius Petipa’s choreography, here in a new scenic version by Yuri Grigorovich, is exquisite; the scene known as The Kingdom of the Shades is one of the most celebrated in the history of ballet. Bolshoi principals Svetlana Zakharova and Maria Alexandrova bring the characters of this romantic ballet to life.

don't for get to tell people that your going to #VashonTheatre
Vashon Island dances to its own beat. Unlike the Bainbridge, Bremerton, or even Kingston ferries, if you walk onto the one departing Fauntleroy for the southwesterly isle, you're sort of stranded. Even if you bring a bike, the hill you're confronted with at the onset of the three-mile ride to Vashon's tiny commercial strip is so daunting that you'll be thumbing it in no time. But once you make it there, it's worth it, in large part because of the Vashon Theatre. Sure, they show movies—really interesting documentaries, charming indies, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at midnight. There's something for everyone, a sentiment amplified by the fact that the theater also hosts live music and theatrical productions—even an Oscar-night party, replete with a red carpet and snazzily dressed revelers. It's not just a great place to take in a flick; it's a community anchor, and a sure sign that the silver-screen experience can be preserved for as long as people are willing to breathe ingenuity and life into it. —Mike Seely
