“We will never see dancers quite like this again.” – Clive Barnes.

The first part of this film features Galina Ulanova in excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. Utilizing dazzling special effects, this production takes full advantage of the artistic qualities of the cinema, rather than merely recording the event. This is truly an historical film document, for it is the only existant tape of Ulanova as Odette.

The second part of this three-part ballet film contains a most unusual event, a one-of-a kind sequence in which two of the world’s greatest ballerinas, Galina Ulanova and Maya Plisetskaya, dance together in a memorable performance of B.V. Asafiev’s ballet, The Fountain Of Bakhchisarai. This is the only filmed record of these two great dancers performing together and it provides a unique opportunity to compare their different styles.

The great Russian dancer Vakhtang Chabukiani is featured in the third part of this film in a performance of B.V. Asafiev’s The Flames Of Paris, which is a colorful homage to the French Revolution. This film also features the soloists and ballet troupe of the Bolshoi Theatre, and soloists, ballet troupe, choir and orchestra of the Leningrad Opera and Ballet Theatre.

Swan Lake features: Odette ... Galina Ulanova; Odile ... Natalia Dudinskaya; and Prince ... Konstantine Sergeyev. The Fountain Of Bakhchisarai features: Maris ... Galina Ulanova; Zarema ... Maya Plisetskaya; Girzi ... Peter Gussiev; and Vaclav ... Yuri Zhdanov. The Flames Of Paris features: Philippe ... Vakhtang Chabukiani; and Jeanne ... M. Gottlieb.

The Sleeping Beauty - Tchaikovsky/Dutch National Ballet DVD

The Sleeping Beauty - Tchaikovsky/Dutch National Ballet
The Sleeping Beauty - Tchaikovsky/Dutch National Ballet

Tchaikovsky and Petipa's timeless ballet - acknowledged as the most pure and demanding piece in the classic romantic repertoire - is a stunning example of the sparkling virtuosity of Petipa's rich dance vocabulary.

Recorded at Het Muziektheater in Amsterdam with Het Nationale Ballet (The Dutch National Ballet) in 2003, this version was created in 1981 by the English choreographer Sir Peter Wright, whose sensitive staging closely reflects Marius Petipa's original work.

In 1989 the ballet was adapted for Het Muziektheater's larger stage. Philip Prowse's ravishing Baroque sets and costumes add the glamour and grandeur essential to a ballet intended for the court of the Russian Tsar.

The Sleeping Beauty Video (D4070)

The Sleeping Beauty
Starring: Aurelie Dupont, Manuel Legris, Vincent Cordier, Nathalie Quernet. Conductor: David Coleman.  Choreographer: Rudolf Nureyev. Composer: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

The Sleeping Beauty remains, as Rudolf Nureyev often called it, the ‘ballet of ballets'. It is the most accomplished and the most brilliant, as well as one of the most spectacular of the 19th century, and the most representative of the ‘noble' style of classical dancing. Rudolf Nureyev's version, which he created for the Opera Ballet in 1989, was recorded at the Opéra Bastille in 1999, in a new production (sets and costumes) created by his faithful collaborators, Ezio Frigerio and Franca Squarciapino, who had already produced Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet and La Bayadère.
