'New York City Ballet: Bringing Balanchine Back' tells the story of New York City Ballet's historic visit to St. Petersburg, Russia to perform at the famed Mariinsky Theater, where ballet legend and NYCB co-founder George Balanchine received his training and began his career. One of the most famous theaters in the world, the Mariinsky is where Tschaikovsky created 'The Nutcracker' and 'The Sleeping Beauty', and where other greats of the ballet world such as Nureyev, Nijinksy and Baryshnikov took their first ballet steps. The eagerly anticipated trip is gracefully illustrated with both behind-the-scenes and performance footage.
