Product Description

Don Quixote retains its foothold in the standard repertoire through its colorful dances, a whimsical story and its brilliantly virtuosic last act pas de deux. Virtuosity is very much on display in this 1992 performance by the Tchaikovsky Perm State Ballet during the company’s Japanese tour. Nina Ananiashvili’s Kitri displays her astonishing technical gifts, her natural charm and a flair for comedy. Her long-time partner, Alexei Fadeyechev as Basil, is her perfect foil in all these respects. This video is the only record of Ananiashvili in one of her signature roles.
