Dance has always moved freely across borders. In the 19th century, Italian and French dancers journeyed to Russia to make their names.

She visits Tchaikovsky's house near Moscow and talks to Marie Rambert about Diaghilev. This program includes rare film of Anna Pavlova dancing three of her most famous solos.
