Young warriors led by Solor are hunting. Before entering the forest, Solor  
sends a fakir to tell bayadere Nikiya (a "Temple Dancer") that he will meet 
her later at night. When Nikiya and Solor meet, they swear eternal fidelity 
to each other. They are unaware that the High Brahmin also in love with     
Nikiya, overhears them and decides to take revenge. He rushes to reveal this
secret to the Rajah who has selected Solor to be the fiance of Gamzatti, his
beloved daughter. Nikiya, unaware of the arrangement, agrees to dance at the
couple's betrothal celebrations. The jealous High Brahmin in - an effort to 
have Solor killed and have Nikiya for himself - tells the Rajah that the    
warrior has already vowed love to the bayadere over. But the Rajah, rather  
than becoming angry with Solor, vows that Nikiya must die. Gamzatti, who has
eavesdropped on this exchange, summons Nikiya to the palace in an attempt to
bribe her into giving up her beloved. As their rivalry intensifies, Nikiya  
picks up a dagger in a fit of rage and attempts to kill Gamzatti. Nikiya is 
stopped at the last moment and flees in horror at what she has almost done.
