Notes and Editorial Reviews

This stunning release is a tribute to the art of David Hallberg, the first main American soloist ever to be hired by the Bolshoi Ballet. It features “The Sleeping Beauty,” wherein the choreographer Yuri Grigorovich presents a new version of one of his most famous choreography for a breathtaking new experience in splendid sets designed by Ezio Frigerio and more than 400 new costumes designed by Franca Squarciapino. David Hallberg performs alongside principal ballerina Svetlana Zakharova. Also included is “Marco Spada.” Recreated specifically for the Bolshoi by French choreographer Pierre Lacotte, “Marco Spada” is a grandiose and unique ballet both on a technical and dramatic level: complex choreography, five lead roles created for five Read more principals, several changes in scenery, the participation of nearly all the Corps de ballet, and even the presence of animals on stage… With its scenes of pantomime, devilish intrigue, rejected suitors, kidnapping heroines, rebellion, and lovers misunderstandings, Marco Spada is a fresh and joful ballet to discover.
