"balletomanes will relish the opportunity to see these dancers… Recommended"

- The Washington Post

 

Nina Timofeyeva first trained and performed at the Kirov Ballet, and then entered the Bolshoi Ballet Company in 1961, where she became a principal ballerina for more than two decades. Her grace, beauty and perfect control shine through this unique film, in which she also acts as choreographer.

 

Mikhail Lavrosky also entered the Bolshoi Ballet in 1961, and quickly rose to the leading male dancer in most of the repertory. Lavrosky is known for his exceptional technique, as well as the heroic splendor and penetrating presence he brings to all his roles, from the Prince in “Cinderella” to “Spartacus.”
