Strictly Bolshoi( Visual )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strictly Bolshoi is truly entertaining. Conceived and shot by the infamous Ballet Boyz (former Royal Ballet stars, Michael Nunn & William Trevitt), they take the viewer on a compelling journey through the trials and tribulations of the creative process. We follow talented choreographer Christopher Wheeldon as he battles with the temperament of the Bolshoi ballet dancers, having to deal with their egos and amusing tantrums along the way. The Bolshoi Ballet is undoubtedly one of the greatest ballet companies and is the envy of every company the world over. Housed in the beautiful new Bolshoi Theatre in the heart of Moscow, the film gains unprecedented access to its studios, artists and traditions, capturing the pressures and demands that Christopher faces as he strives to create a ballet worthy of its dancers and the strict traditions they must observe daily, as artists and as a company. Blending fly-on-the-wall footage as well as diary-cam confessions and interviews from some of the ballet world's most illustrious figures, this film culminates in the broadcast of the ballet that Christopher choreographed for the Bolshoi, which the company performed in Moscow at its world premiere before bringing it to London to great acclaim. Featuring music 'Third Symphony' by Estonian composer Arvo Part, and some of the world's finest classical ballet dancers including the Bolshoi's own Nicolai Tsiskaridze and Maria Alexandrova, as well as Darcey Bussell in rare rehearsal footage of Wheeldon's most recent creation for The Royal Ballet, DGV

"In this age of YouTube, the very act of presenting live bodies in a performance setting is a radical act. While such a path is far from easy, the seven choreographers seen in this film work tirelessly to both question and embrace their chosen form, producing work that celebrates the strange, startling and poetic beauty of dance and performance."--Http://www.michaelblackwoodproductions.com/md_nydance.php

The Bolshoi Ballet in Christopher Wheeldon's Misericordes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Created especially for Russia's Bolshoi Ballet, perhaps the most esteemed and time-honored dance company in the world, the piece known at its premiere as Misericordes is a richly imagined reinterpretation of Hamlet. This recording of its opening night performance in Moscow captures both the boundary-pushing vision of choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and the breathtaking artistry of Svetlana Lunkina, Dmitri Gudanov, and other Bolshoi dancers. The work is choreographed to Arvo Pärt's Symphony No. 3, which, together with Paul Tazewell's graceful costumes, lends the production an aura of sacred pageantry and, on a more subtle level, a haunting sense of danger. Part of the series Strictly Bolshoi"--Container
