Description

This DVD records some of the earliest experiences by the West of the bravura and discipline of Russia’s Kirov and Bolshoi ballet companies at the height of their physical and interpretive powers. This rare footage showcases some of the greatest dancers of their time, including the much celebrated Galina Ulanova, who came as close to artistic sainthood for Russians as any dancer in its history.

The ICA Classics Legacy series presents a collection of historic performances by some of the world’s greatest artists. These performances are released on DVD for the first time, incorporating rare archive footage that has been expertly and lovingly restored.
