La Bayadère is the National Ballet of China's new repertoire in 2016. This edition is what Natalia Makarova, a world-famous ballerina and choreographer, choreographed for American Ballet Theater (ABT) in 1980.
La Bayadère was created even earlier than Swan Lake. Its intricate plot and difficulty in performance have made it a touchstone for any ballet company's strength.
