Swan Lake Maya Plisetskaya and the Bolshoi Ballet, with Bogatirev and Efimov Choreography by Grigorovich after Petipa &Ivanov, Music by Tchaikovsky Maya Plisetskaya performed the dual roles of Odette and Odile in Swan Lake more than 800 times, an astonishing statistic, especially considering the sheer technical demands this ballet places upon the ballerina. This DVD of a thrilling 1976 performance commemorating the 100th year of Swan Lake by the Bolshoi is the first fully complete performance of the ballet starring Plisetskaya to be released on home video. For this historic even Plisetskaya was joined by her highly esteemed partner, the charismatic Alexander Bogatirev. Efimov provides a dark, menacing Rothbart and Abrosimov is appropriately acrobatic as the jester. The sense of occasion is everywhere in this dazzling performance of a ballet masterpiece. DVD 141 minutes, color
