Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new release is a tribute to the art and elegance of Svetlana Zakharova, “prima ballerina assoluta” and queen of the Bolshio Ballet. All of these performances were recorded at the State Academic Bolshoi Theater of Moscow. Tchaikovsky’s famous “Swan Lake” opens the programme. Next is “The Sleeping Beauty,” choreographed by Yuri Grigorovich for a breathtaking experience. Marius Petipa’s exotic ballet “La Bayadere” is set in legendary and mysterious India. Finally, “The Pharoh’s Daughter,” recreates the spectacular sumptuousness of the original with its stupendous costumes and striking scenery. Also included on this release is a special documentary about the creation of the ballet at the Bolshoi and an exclusive interview of Pierre Read more Lacotte. Read less
