This DVD is very enjoyable. The positives are many and the negatives are minor. First, Vladimir Vasiliev is a good heroic Spartacus. He is not quite the equal to either of the Mukamedov performances with the Bolshoi Ballet, but he is the next most convincing Spartacus after that. Ekaterna Maximova (his real life wife) is as good as any of the other Phrygias around. She is lovely and delecate, yet strong-- and what beautiful feet and legs. Liepa is a good in his role and probably the second third or fourth best in my opinon. My favorite is Alexander Vetrov with the Bolshoi. (The Bolshoi practically owns the recorded performances.of Spartacus). A very posiitive performances is that of Nina Timofeyeva as Aegina.. She performs very strongly with great technique. She is my favorite Aegina except for both of Maria Bilova's Superb performances with the Bolshoi. Bilova has an imposing statuesque presence, beautiful feet and legs and just the right amount of saucey iceyness with strong, strong technique. Wow, she is good. Even so, Timofeyeva is splendid. Originally, I was going to give this performance four stars, but after considering the ensemble dancing of the male, female and combined ensembles, I decided to give it five stars. They infuse such spirit and energy into the performance that it commands recognition. The conducting and musical permormance has Algis Zhuriatis competing primarily with himself on other recordings. All of them are excellent and display the right amount of lyrical beauty and, when necessary, snarly crudeness. So, I highly recommend this disc, even though is is in black and white. The color of the ballet itself makes this barely noticable. For its age, the picture is very servicable. Do not confuse this disc with the wretched one put out by Etoilies de Bolshoi. Again, highly recommended.

O blog de ópera e Ballet publicou em Setembro de 2009 o seguinte texto sobre o balé Spartacus : "O Estado Soviético tinha a mania de se meter em tudo, queria controlar a vida de seus cidadãos. Nas artes não foi diferente: desenvolveu uma estética que ele, (o Estado), achava ideal. Valores como o coletivo, o trabalho em comunidade, a simplicidade do campo eram os mais queridos dos comunas do século passado. Impostos de cima para baixo são uma aberração do século XX.
Toda arte produzida de forma artificial, por encomenda, através de algum burocrata do Kremlin, fica sem graça. Não é o resultado da criatividade de algum gênio da música, das letras e da dança. Primeiro Stalin adorou a idéia desse balé, embora tenha morrido sem assisti-lo. Aran Khachatarian ficou incumbido da composição, seguiu a cartilha comunista, fez uma música sem inspiração, fria, marcial, que abusa dos metais.
Spartacus tem seu ponto forte na coreografia. Yuri Grigorovich coreografa belos números, muitas vezes utiliza passos de dificuldade máxima para mostrar a superioridade soviética nas artes sobre o ocidente. Quebra a seqüência dramática, tira o ritmo da dança, o que importa é a dificuldade técnica. Joga para a galera, aplausos efusivos a cada momento. Algum burocrata deve tê-lo obrigado a isso. O balé Spartacus é um trabalho que os comunas julgavam ser dessa estética. A luta dos escravos contra os poderosos romanos simboliza a própria luta do comunismo contra o capitalismo, opressor contra oprimido. Não podemos nos esquecer que o balé foi composto e produzido por encomenda na década de 50.
