Notes & Reviews:
Yuri Grigorovich has choreographed Sergei Prokofiev's haunting score to Sergei Einstein's film Ivan the Terrible. A visually dazzling, completely original work, this is a balettic rendering of the story of murder and intrigue at the court of the Czar known as Ivan the Terrible.
During the Bolshoi Ballet's visits to America, this ballet was one of the most enthusiastically received productions and here it is rendered the full cinematic treatment. Starring Yuri Vladimirov, Natalia Bessmertnova and Boris Akimov (the original cast), and featuring the Orchestra and Corps de Ballet of the Bolshoi Theatre, this is an outstanding example of dance on film.Notes & Reviews:
