A bonkers plot that a star-studded cast dance with utter conviction. A superb #ROHBayadere by the @TheRoyalBallet last night – plus a surprise curtain-call appearance by the great Natalia Makarova. And what about that fabulous corps? pic.twitter.com/UR3SzXUF8A

Wonderful opening night to #ROHbayadere w/heart-rending perf by @MNunezOfficial as Nikiya, nobly danced Solor by Muntagirov, superb Gamzatti by Osipova, plus huge jealousy and emotional angst by @balletboy09 as High Brahmin

#rohbayadere didn't set my world alight tonight (maybe a little later in the run?) but it was lovely to see the RB in something very Petipa, and good to see Osipova, Marianela M and Vadim in action after I had spent a while away. pic.twitter.com/7kx2wHIgyr

Oh what a snore fest the shades act was. Not enough Munti. Not waiting for the golden idol. Early exit. #rohbayadere

This star-studded #ROHBayadère is probably the most beautiful thing a ballet fan will ever see on a stage. The whole cast, especially the ladies’ corps, shimmers with impeccable precision and thoughtful performance; every movement is perfection.
