To Our Valued Customers:
  • February New Releases - Kirov & Bolshoi Ballet Titles
    As we glide into February, we are proud to release a pair of graceful additions to our critically lauded series of ballet DVDs. In Kirov Stars: Shakespeare Dance Trilogy, the legendary company interprets Shakespeare's greatest dramas through dance. In Bolshoi Ballet: Les Sylphides, choreographer Michael Fokine celebrates the timeless music of Chopin via a revolutionary work for the Bolshoi.
  • Other Kirov & Bolshoi Ballet Releases
    In case you missed them, over the last year we released two other critically acclaimed DVDs showcasing these two legendary ballet companies. Bolshoi Soloists: Classique and Kirov Ballet: Classic Ballet Night capture the legendary Russian companies in dazzling performances featuring their most renowned dancers and choreographers.

February New Releases:

Kirov Stars:
Shakespeare Dance Trilogy

Three of Shakespeare’s immortal dramas (Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, & Othello) are powerfully interpreted in this trilogy of one-act ballets danced by the Stars of the Kirov Ballet Company. These performances are truly majestic in their artistic and dramatic scope. Shakespeare’s tale of the star-crossed lovers, Romeo & Juliet, is told with passionate conviction. Electrifying performances, danced to Tchaikovsky’s fantasy-overture, bring this gripping interpretation of Hamlet to life. Lastly, this stylish account of Othello is the most important work of the illustrious Mexican-American dancer/choreographer Jose Limon and is danced with grace and power.

“Beautiful throughout is Svetlana Semenova, the heroine in all three works…a serious performance… has the right to be on video…” - Attitude: The Dancers’ Magazine

Bolshoi Ballet:
Les Sylphides

Michael Fokine took the timeless music of Frederic Chopin and created Chopiniana (later renamed “Les Sylphides”), which celebrates the lyrical and poetic qualities of Romantic Ballet Blanc to express the sublime nature of dance. One of the revolutionary ballets of the 20th Century, “Les Sylphides” was one of the first ballets choreographed to a composition by a great master such as Chopin. This beautifully filmed DVD version of “Les Sylphides” is performed by the Bolshoi Ballet Company, and stands as a testament to their continued commitment to the dramatic and elegant dancing for which they have always been celebrated.
