The Astonishing Moiseyev Dance Company, Vol. 1

Since its founding more than seventy years ago, the Moiseyev Dance Company, through its extensive touring schedule, has brought its theatre of national dance to millions of its fans. Among the highlights in this present collection are a grand staging of the “Polovetsian Dances” from Prince Igor; the mesmerizing "Partisans" in which the dancers glide across the stage with their bodies ridgidly immobile; and an audience favorite, Gauchos, in which three male dancers take machismo to elaborate lengths. 102 minutes, Color, Stereo, All regions.
