Feb. 24 to 27. The world-famous Kirov Ballet will dance at the National Arts Centre this weekend, performing a dazzling interpretation of La Bayadère. The Russian company is known as one of the best classical ballet companies in the world – and it’s earned it. With formidable production values, an instinct for spectacle, and outstanding performers, this troupe is not to be missed. They will serve up six performances of this dramatic story of forbidden love between an Indian Prince and a humble temple dancer.
