9:55 AM Film: Bolshoi Ballet's La Bayadere Fathom Events and Angelika Film Center present "La Bayadere," captured live from a performance at the Bolshoi in Moscow.

The ballet follows temple dancer Nikiya and the warrior Solor as they fall deeply in love, igniting heated passions and murderous intrigues when the Rajah and his daughter Gamzatti discover their forbidden love.

"La Bayadere" is one of the greatest works in classical ballet history - a story of love, death and vengeful judgment, set in India. Dazzling sets and costumes, with one of the most iconic scenes in ballet, the "Kingdom of the Shades," illuminate the tragic tale of the temple dancer Nikiya's doomed love for the warrior Solor, and their ultimate redemption.
