"Excellent historical footage. Excellent camera work allowing ballet afficianados the chance to see 1980s stars at close range. Also interesting for Western audiences unfamiliar with Russian repertoire not normally seen in the West such as "Spring Waters" - although the performance here is not as good as these dancers normally produced. On the other hand - an excellent example of Michaelchenko's and Alexei Fadeev's work - of which there is little of which is available on video/DVD. Well worth buying."
