Treasures of the Russian Ballet Galina Ulanova, Maya Plisetskaya, Vladimir Vasiliev… – Ballet du Bolshoï

About

Though ballet had its genesis in the courts of Europe, it was in Russia that it evolved into the art form that we know better today – particularly with the creation of the story ballet or balet-dram culminating in tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, Slepping Beauty and Nutcracker trio of masterworks. Of equal significance was the level of training needed for the dancers to develop the skills, assets and grace required. Nijinsky, Pavlova, Karsavina and Massine are just a few examples of the dancers whose fame has spread internationally.
