Most interesting history of Russian ballet. Their tours of America, London and Australia and all the drama backstage. Quite poignant, really, to see Irina Baronova dancing as a very young girl and... Read morenow aging gracefully and as all the other dancers were then and now.
Fame, glamour, ego, politics, money, war, love . . . and dance.
For many, modern ballet began with the Ballet Russe of Monte Carlo, originally made up of Russian exiles from the Russian Revolution. This film tells the story of this landmark company with its stars and production as well as its power games, rivalries and tribulations that marked its turbulent history.
