Besides THE NUTCRACKER, are there any videos available of Maximova and Vasiliev dancing together?

Thanks!

Thanks for the detailed list, rg. Since buying the dvd of SPARTACUS I've fallen in love with Vasiliev and am eager to see him dance with his wife.

Dear MakarovaFan, My most treasured video - you know the kind of stuff you would grab first if the house was in flames - is a video of Maximova-Vasiliev in act 2 of Giselle. Try your very best to get hold of that one! Magnificent stuff indeed. I took it from the TV so mine is not a bought tape. It is so beautiful I get tears in my eyes every time I see it. I agree with you, one could just fall in love with Vasiliev, he is the most perfect Albrecht I have ever seen... And Maximova is a dream come true. :unsure: :wink:

have you tried amazon?
otherwise video artists international might have a site, i'm not too sure.
maybe others have tips here.
or the kultur tapes from kultur's site.
sad to say when these things pass their first year or so of distribution they sometimes disappear from the lists.

Pamela,

Wow - you have video of Vasiliev and Maximova dancing Act II of GISELLE?! It must be gorgeous. Years ago I was watching a ballet documentary and saw a clip of them dancing from Act I and they were breath-taking. The film looked like it was made in the '70's. Talk about two hearts beating as one!

The New York Public Library has an extensive video dance collection, so I'll try my luck there.

MakarovaFan,
I found it interesting to see Maximova and Vasiliev dancing together when they were 13, in "The Glory of Bolshoi". It also includes a solo danced by Maximova when she was a teenager.
Good luck in finding the video. :)

I have that video too. The clip of a teenage Maximova dancing the Sugar Plum Fairy solo shows such a light and delicate technique even at that young age.

exballetstudent,

I wanted to buy THE GLORY OF THE BOLSHOI on dvd and Amazon's U.K. site had it (in Region 2 format only) for the best price. Amazon's U.S. site only has the film in VHS format.
