Every March is a very busy month in Hong Kong with the Hong Kong Arts Festival. This year there were quite a few dance performances as part of the program, which made it even more exciting.
The German company Bayersiches Staatsballet opened the program with La Bayadère. This is just a small clip of Solor's first variation danced by Sergei Polunin in 2016.
I had the unique opportunity to visit the backstage of La Bayadère just the morning before I watched their captivating show. The props and the costumes are sublime. I'll dedicate another post only to the costumes and the hand embroideries of the tutus. Below, a few general photos of the back stage, including the big tiger!
