Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
Featuring elite dancers including Altynai Asylmuratova, Konstantin Zalinsky, Yelena Pankova, and Anna Polikarpova, Kirov Classics offers a glance into several celebrated Soviet ballets. The innovative company offers a variety of interpretations of famous ballets; director Oleg Vinogradov's version of Petrushka is a fast-paced set far removed from the somber tone it was originally composed to be. Among the other sets include "Adagio For Strings", "The Fairy Doll", and "Le Corsaire".
