Natalia Osipova and The Kingdom of The Shadows

In the 1880s Petipa staged revivals of older works such as Mazilier’s Le Corsaire. La Bayadere was originally staged in four acts and seven tableaux by Petipa to the music of Ludwig Minkus. It was first performed by The Imperial Ballet in St.Petersburg.

The Kingdom of The Shadows is one of the most celebrated moments in classical ballet and is considered one of the first examples of “abstract ballet”.
