Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith

Heavy usage of slides and still photos helps bring to life the distinguished history of the Kirov Ballet. In between the stills and toward the end of the tape, viewers will see performances by such noted dancers as Mikhail Baryshnikov, Galina Ulanova, and Anna Pavlova. As this video indicates, the Kirov Ballet originated in Russia back in the early 18th century. Over the centuries, its distinguished performances have been frequently curtailed due to political upheavals and other difficulties.
