"The picture of Maya Plisetskaya is deceving, if one only buy the video because of her.This is a more interessting video if one want to witness Galina Ulanova in all her glory. The first ballet ''collage'' is an rare film studio version of Swan lake, With a lot of special effects. Specially the tranformation swan/human is worth mentioning + animated parts. It also includes a mashinegun speeded Natalia Dudinskaya as the Black swan. The fountains of Bakhhisarai is the only ballet one can see Ulanova/Plisetskaya , dancing together. The the flames of Paris is only of'' historical document'' interest. Charlie Chaplin would have done it better!"

"Great historical DVD! - chance to see those stars in motion that you've only seen in still photos. Check out the technique - Dudinskaya as Odile and Cahbukiani in Flames of Paris! Also footage of the only time Plisetsakya and Ulanova appeared together on stage in the Fountain of Bakhchisarai."
