Most widely held works by Nina Ananiashvili
Return of the Firebird by Igor Stravinsky( Visual )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three ballets based on those performed by Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in Paris early in the 20th century, as choreographed by Michel Fokine. These are recreated with sumptuous costumes based on original designs, beautiful sound, and traditionally excellent Russian dancers led by Andris Liepa and Nina Ananiashvili. The ballets were filmed at Mosfilm Studios as cinematically as possible, not as stage performances. Petrushka is the story of a Russian traditional puppet, made of straw and with a bag of sawdust as his body, which comes to life and develops emotions. The Firebird uses Russian folk tales of the magical glowing bird--that is both a blessing and a curse to its captor--in an encounter with the evil magician Kashchei. Scheherazade features a Persian sultan, his favorite concubine, her secret lover, a treacherous eunuch, and a pretended hunting trip. This luscious orientalist extravaganza is an encomium from the modern Russian ballet world to Diaghilev and his desire to share that wealth with the world

Giselle by Adolphe Adam( Visual )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2017 and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This moving and picturesque work of French romantic ballet caused a sensation in 1841. With music by Adolphe Adam and choreography by Jules Perrot (the solos) and Jean Coralli (the ensemble), Giselle featured the new ethereality possible on pointe, ghostly lighting effects with gas light, and a ballerina role whose mad scene is famous for its dramatic demands. The Bolshoi Ballet's version by Yuri Grigorovich, atmospherically designed by chief designer Simon Virsaladze, incorporates careful choreographic developments to keep this antique ballet fresh. Mime passages of the past were gradually replaced with more dance. This 1991 performance film, digitally restored and remastered to HD quality, stars the world-renowned Nina Ananiashvili as a delicate yet dramatic Giselle, with Victor Barykin as the faithless Albert."--From distributor website
