Rockland — A captured-live (same day) high-definition broadcast of “La Bayadere,” performed by the Bolshoi Ballet, will be presented Sunday, Jan. 20, at 1 p.m. at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St. THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED TO A DATE TBA

The temple dancer Nikiya and the warrior Solor 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.

“La Bayadere” runs three hours and 15 minutes, including two intermissions. Tickets are $15, $10 for students younger than 19; and college students with ID. For more information, visit rocklandstrand.com; call 594-0070, ext. 3; or email info@rocklandstrand.com.
