In their series of classical ballet productions from La Scala Arthaus releases a video recording of "La Bayadère" in the choreography by Natalia Makarova. Her version, based on the original 1877 creation by the great master of Russian classical ballet, Marius Petipa, has become the standard since the famous Kirov Company made it popular worldwide. It was filmed at the May 2006 revival of Makarova's 1992 production for La Scala, Milan, and features two of international ballet's star dancers - Svetlana Zakharova and Roberto Bolle. The Bayadère Nikiya is created by Svetlana Zakharova, a Ukrainian dancer, who grew up in the tradition of St Petersburg's Maryinsky Ballet and is now one of the youngest ballerinas at Moscow's Bolshoi Ballet and Roberto Bolle, the primo ballerino étoile in the Corpo di ballo del Teatro alla Scala, dances Solor, a brave, young nobleman. The filming for this video recreates the atmosphere of a night at the wonderful La Scala opera house, while providing the viewer with a closer look at the dancers, their interpretation, and their artistic endeavors

Swan lake : ballet in four acts by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky( Visual )

2 editions published between 1988 and 1995 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This episode of Footnotes: The Classics of Ballet is about Swan Lake. Dancer Frank Augustyn and others discuss various aspects of the ballet Swan Lake, beginning with its evolution from a failure at its first performance to its current status as a ballet classic. Drawing on their own performing experiences, the dancers discuss how the story can be made believable and compelling. They note changes in the choreography over time, particularly the increased importance of the male dancer. Advances in technical facility, exemplified by the thirty-two fouettés executed in the role of Odile by Pierina Legnani, are contrasted to the ballet's emphasis upon dramatic characterization, especially in the dual role of Odette/Odile. Performance excerpts (choreography by Yuri Grigorovich after Aleksandr Gorski, Lev Ivanov, and Marius Petipa) illustrate the discussion
