Marius Petipa’s seminal work La Bayadere was first performed at the Imperial Kamenny Theatre in St. Petersburg in 1877 in a grandiose production portraying a mysterious India and the impossible love between the sacred dancer Nikiya and the warrior Solor.  A scene from the ballet, known as The Kingdom of the Shades, is one of the most celebrated excerpts in all of classical ballet, and is consdered to be one of the first examples of abstract ballet.  Although a major work in Russian tradition, the ballet remained unknown for a long time in the West.
