La Bayadere is one of the greatest works in classical ballet history – a story of love, death and vengeful judgment, set in India.

The Golden Age

With its jazzy score by Dmitri Shostakovich and its music-hall atmosphere featuring beautiful tangos, The Golden Age is a refreshing and colorful dive into the roaring 20’s.
