Description
This 1976 performance stars the legendary Maya Plisetskaya—one of the supreme ballerinas of the 20th century—in the challenging dual role of Odette and Odile. Prince Siegfried (swoon) is danced by Alexander Bogatirev and the villain Rothbart by Boris Efimov. Having performed Swan Lake no fewer than 800 times between 1947 and 1977, Plisetskaya was indelibly identified with the ballet, and her emotional identification with the role of the Swan Queen is palpable. As to her dancing, well it's hard to fathom that she was 51, so ingrained was the part in mind and body. This full-length production was created to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Swan Lake at the Bolshoi yet was filmed live at the Kremlin Palace. At times the staging and lighting are dubious (one reviewer quipped that the ceremonial scenes at the royal court looked as though the Queen was having trouble paying her electricity bill), yet the dancing by all involved is out of this world.
