This glorious three-act ballet boasts a magical score by Alexander Glazunov, filled with melody, color and grand effects.

ACT 1 – Ludmila Semenyaka is magnificent as the youthful, charming Raymonda, niece to the Countess Sybil de Daurice of France. Raymonda is engaged to the gallant knight Jean de Brienne, who is superbly portrayed by Irek Moukhamedov. Because he must immediately depart on a campaign with King Andrei II of Hungary, the youth comes to the castle to bring his fiancée gifts and to bid her farewell. That night as Raymonda muses on her beloved, a statue of the White Lady, patroness of the House of Daurice, appears in a vision. She beckons the girl to the Magic Garden of Dreams, where Jean awaits her. But the apparition suddenly disappears, and in Jean's place there is an unknown, exotic Eastern knight, who makes a passionate declaration of love to the bewildered Raymonda, when she faints, the knight vanishes. As dawn breaks, Raymonda awakens in the belief that her dream has been a terrible omen of her destiny.

ACT II – A celebration is underway at the castle. Among the guests is the Saracen knight Abderakhaman, performed by the electrifying Gedeminas Tarands. In him the terrified Raymonda recognizes the mysterious stranger she saw in her dream. Though he promises to give her riches and power in return for her heart and hand, she rejects him. Aberakham tries to abduct Raymonda. Unexpectedly however, Jean and the other knights return from their mission. To resolve the differences between Jean and Abderakham, King Andrei proposes a duel of honor. Aberakhman is defeated and Jean reclaims the overjoyed Raymonda.

Jerome Robbins: Something to Dance About (PBS American Masters Production) DVD

Jerome Robbins: Something to Dance About
Jerome Robbins: Something to Dance About

In a life that inspired controversy, no one disputes the place that Jerome Robbins holds as the preeminent director/choreographer of American musical theatre. He transformed Broadway with shows like West Side Story, Gypsy and Fiddler on the Roof, and he forged a career in ballet, first at American Ballet Theatre, then at New York City Ballet.

This two-hour film, produced and directed by Judy Kinberg and written by best-selling Robbins' biographer Amanda Vaill, features excerpts from Robbins' work, never-before-seen rehearsal footage, and interviews with many of his colleagues from ballet and Broadway, including Mikhail Baryshnikov, Suzanne Farrell, Jacques d'Amboise, Arthur Laurents, Chita Rivera, and Stephen Sondheim.

Romeo and Juliet - Zhdanov and Ulanova Video  (D1202)

Romeo and Juliet - Zhdanov and Ulanova
Romeo and Juliet

“… Matchless for its dramatic power … and Ulanova’s Juliet is unforgettable.”- Clive Barnes.

An historic performance by the legendary Galina Ulanova highlights this lush production of the ever-popular ballet. Choreographed by Leonid Lavrovsky and conducted by world famous Gennadi Rozhdestvensky, this film is rich in detail and characterized by its lovely interior and exterior location work. Yuri Zhdanov is the young Romeo to Ulanova’s unforgettable Juliet. A great ballet is here filmed paying great attention to all the values: musical, choreographic and scenic. This remastered version eliminates the narration that heretofore had interrupted Prokofiev’s score at critical points in the ballet.
