An elegant and bravura staging you will see nowhere else
The eagerly awaited revival of widely acclaimed opener of the 2004/2005 season. Artistic director Maki Asami presents a revised production of this masterpiece, filled with famous scenes representing a compendium of classical Russian ballet as conceived by Petipa while at the same time possessing an appealingly exotic power. The complex tapestry of romance woven by the protagonists unfolds vividly in a staging with the illusionary charm of a fairy tale.


The setting is medieval France. Raymonda, a niece of a countess, is waiting for the return of her lover Jean de Brienne, who joined the Crusade. The Saracen knight Abderkrakhman is also fascinated by the beautiful noblewoman and attempts to abduct her, dueling with Jean who has just returned home. The victorious Jean is permitted by the countess to marry Raymonda, and the two lovers are united in a grand wedding ceremony.
