This Joffrey premiere, set in India, tells a story of vengeance, love and sex. Starring a temple dancer caught in a love triangle, the spellbinding ballet features vibrant costumes, slithering snakes (live ones—no joke) and other types of spectacle. Not your typical night at the ballet. Choreography by Stanton Welch.
