Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Bolshoi Ballet’s prima ballerina, Maya Plisetskaya, is the star of this lyrical film of excerpts from several of her most famous roles. The centerpiece of the film is the ballet of 'Carmen', a spectacularly choreographed and orchestrated version of George Bizet’s famous opera. Also included are scenes from Glazunov’s 'Raymonda', a choreographed version of a Bach work called 'Prelude', and the famous 'Dying Swan'. First created by Mikhail Fokine for Anna Pavlova, 'The Dying Swan' appeals, in Fokine’s own words, "not merely to the eye but to the emotions and the imagination."

This is a genuinely cinematic treatment of ballet and dancers and not merely a filming of a stage production. Choreography by Vladimir Vasiliev, Alberto Alonso and others is featured along with spectacular conducting by composer Rodion Shchedrin.
