Notes and Editorial Reviews

This glorious three act ballet boasts a magical score by Alexander Glazunov, filled with melody, color and grand effects. Ludmila Semenyaka is magnificent as the youthfully charming Raymonda and her gallant knight, Jean de Brienne, is superbly portrayed by Irek Moukhamedov. This is a beautiful story of a young couple separated by Jean's committment to aid King Andrei II on a campaign. In the midst of all this, another would-be suitor, a Saraceb knight, Abderakhman (played by Gedeminas Taranda) makes a bid for the hand of Raymonda. When she rejects him, he threatens to abduct her. Jean returns just in time to settle this problem in a proper duel. Abderakhman is handily defeated, and Raymonda and Jean are married at the court of King Andrei.
