This newly discovered film celebrates the mastery of the great Bolshoi stars, Nina Timofeyeva and Mikhail Lavrosky, who performed in the classic and elegant style of the soviet ballet tradition. Nina Timofeyeva first trained and performed at the Kirov Ballet, and then entered the Bolshoi Company in 1961, where she became a principle dancer for more than two decades. Her grace, beauty and perfect control shine through in this unique film, in which she also acts as choreographer. Mikhail Lavrosky son of the renowned choreographer Leonid Lavrosky, also entered the Bolshoi in 1961 and quickly rose to the leading male dancer in most of their repertory. Lavrosky is known for his exceptional technique, as well as the heroic splendour and penetrating presence he brings to all his roles, from the Prince in Cinderella to Spartacus. Magnum Music is proud to present timeless performances set to splendid music...a testament to the Bolshoi legacy.
