Notes and Editorial Reviews
?A rare opportunity to see Beriosova on film? - A combination of story, melodrama and ballet sets the stage for some of Stravinsky?s most brilliant music. Sir Robert Helpmann, with his talent for mime, dance and acting was the natural choice to play the eight different roles of the Devil?s disguises. With almost unique footage of the beautiful and elegant former Royal Ballet ballerina, Svetlana Beriosova, the two create a counterpoint around which the Soldier plays his tune.
