Ballets Russes back to product details

Full of Wonders

I am not someone for whom ballet is paramount, yet BALLETS RUSSES grabbed me, thrilled me and held me for its two hour span like few documentaries I have seen of late. There is so much history, art, creativity and love shown here, as a surprisingly large group of former stars of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo (and its spin-offs) reunite to reminisce, accompanied by some fabulous archival films that show us exactly what these stars of dance are talking about.

As put together by documentarians Daniel Geller and Dayna Goldfine, barely a moment is wasted in telling this wonderful tale. I think immense gratitude is going to be the reaction of most viewers to this feast of love and dance. That's what wells up in me, anyway, every time I recall this very special experience--which keep popping back into mind, much appreciated, at the oddest of times.
