I've just seen for sale a video called Fuete, with Maximova and Vassiliev - I know no Russian and can't guess from the photograph what this might be. Can someone enlighten me?

Also, is the Swan Lake with Johnny Markovsky worth having?

this is likely the french-made(?) docu. about maximova & vasiliev called, FOUETTE! i have a so-so quality copy of this from some time back and havent watched it since but i recall it was a sound piece of work. the SWANLAKE is probably the kirov film, made in a soundstudio, w/ elena evteyeva and j.m. (v.panov is the jester) if mem. serves this was a filming scheduled for makarova who then 'jumped ship' in london in '70.

nypublic library has one ref. to the film but apparently not the film itself, giving indication that the film was directed by vasiliev himself:

Willis, Margaret E.

Title:Vasiliev through the viewfinder.

Dance Magazine. New York. Jan 1988, p. 48-51. ill.

Notes: Vladimir Vasil'ev has expanded his career into film directing.

Subjects:Aniuta (Choreographic work : Vasil'ev)

:Ballet in motion pictures. Fouetté.

here's what the library's listing says about the swanlake:

Thankyou for that, rg - in the end, though both sounded interesting, I didn't buy either of them, as the postage etc were adding up to quite a bit although the intial price was only about $10. (They were on e-bay and nobody bid at all)
