Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Utterly plotless, Concert of Stars is a compendium of top Russian musical talent. The first act on the bill is a performance by the Symphony Orchestra of the Lenin State Philharmonic Society. This is followed by opera star M. Mikhailov's rendition of an aria from Glinka's opera Ivan Susanin. Next up, a ballet performance of Frederick Chopin's Valse, performed by Galina Ulanova and V. Prebrazhensky. Then, L. Maseinnov and Sergei Lemeshev perform a scene from Tchaikovsky's Queen of Spades. There follows an excerpt from Glazunov's ballet Raymond, danced by N. Dudinskaya and K. Sergeyev. Closing out this cinematic concert are performances by the State Folk Dance Ensemble, among others.
