Notes and Editorial Reviews

The sumptuous 1954 Technicolor production of Romeo and Juliet stars Galina Ulanova as a radiant Juliet and Yuri Zhandov as an ardent Romeo. Upon its initial videocassette release, the New York Times dance critic glowingly reported: "The famed 1954 film version of Leonid Lavrovsky's ballet with the great Galina Ulanova is hors concours {incontestable} as a classic." A DVD extra is Ulanova in the second act pas de deux from Swan Lake. The conductor of the Bolshoi Ballet orchestra is the venerated Gennady Rozhdestvensky.
