Product Description

Three of William Shakespeare's immortal dramas are powerfully interpreted in this trilogy of one-act ballets, danced by the stars of the Kirov Ballet Company, in this riveting DVD entitled Kirov Stars: Shakespeare Dance Trilogy. These performances are truly majestic in their artistic and dramatic scope. Shakespeare's tale of the star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, is told with passionate conviction. Electrifying performances, danced to Tchaikovsky's fantasy-overture, bring this gripping interpretation of Hamlet to life. Lastly, the stylish account of Othello (The Moor's Pavane), with music composed by Henry Purcell, is the most important work of the illustrious Mexican-American dancer/choreographer Jose Limon and is danced with grace and power. Filmed on location at a spectacular medieval castle overlooking the sea, this special DVD features a powerful cultural combination, the grace and elegance of the stars of the Kirov Ballet dancing to the most famous stories of the world's greatest writer.

The plays of Shakespeare have always been a rich source of inspiration in the world of ballet. Now three strikingly costumed and choreographed productions have been compiled in a single outstanding DVD from V.I.E.W. Video. "Kirov Stars: Shakespeare Dance Trilogy" showcases the impressive talent of Kirov Ballet troupe in three of Shakespeare's best know dramas. the productions of 'Romeo and Juliet' and 'Hamlet' are performed to the music of Tchaikovsky. 'The Moor's Pavane' is drawn from Othello and is performed to the music of Henry Purcell. In all three productions, the music is expertly performed by the State Academic Orchestra of the USSR. The set designs are superb, the talent is memorable, and the production values of flawless. Enhanced for viewers with bonus features that include Tchaikovsky's biography, and a total running time of seventy minutes, "Kirov Stars: Shakespeare Dance Trilogy" is very highly recommended viewing for ballet enthusiasts and an enduring popular addition to community library DVD collections.
