The Mariinsky-Kirov establishment is one about which not enough nice things can be said. Their ballet is the world’s longest lived and the progenitor of the foremost in classical ballet works and artists. The opera and music are likewise front rank and are surviving nicely under the directorship of Valerie Gergiev. The organization has weathered the horrifying upheavals of war and politics but now faces the economic challenges of free market competition drawing away its talent. Fortunately the company is large enough to send out its performers on tour, and hopefully by one means or another they will continue to thrive in their tradition of excellence. This documentary lays out the history and current challenges of the company beautifully and often metaphorically through examples from it’s masterwork performances of Sleeping Beauty and Boris Godunov. This was a joy to watch.
This film is a little outdated but still very interesting and informative.
