I'm a HUGE fan of Imperial Russian ballet--even when I was a kid I'd research all the photos I could find of the original Vsevelosky (sp?) and Petipa productions of SLeeping Beauty etc...

You can't believe how thrilled I was when I heard they had reconstructed the original version--sadly it's never toured naywhere by me. Has there been any plans to film it--or are they purposefully keeping it more special/unfilmed?

Are there any sites or books with good photos on it?

And finally I found thru wikipedia a site of videos of the III act--unfortunately not very good quality but they'll have to do. Obviously pro filmed it says they were for a NEw Year's Benefit? any more info on this?

And has anything from the reconstructed Bayadere been filmed?

Thanks so much guys

E

If you don't already have it I suggest you buy Sleeping Beauty: A Legend in Progress by Tim Scholl. It's an account of the reconstruction of the ballet by the Kirov.

There is no DVD/video available as far as I know.

Thanks I noticed that book on Amazon and from reading the sample pages it does sound to be fascinating--especially its coverage of the whole argument against the revival.

Does it contain many/any pictures though?

Hi EricMontreal22! Yes there are many pictures from the original production and opening night, as well as the current production. The book is a must have, and a complete history of the ballet in Russia,
from Imperial times through the Soviet era, to the revival in April 1999.
