Any DVD recommendations for Romeo and Juliet?

Thanks for your trouble! That's interesting, so a lot must have been cut compared to the 152 minute 1974 Vasiliev/Maximova production. I wonder if it was cut for the broadcast, or in performance (I believe the Lavrosky one you mention was filmed during a tour).

Anyway, thanks for remembering to look it up!

Isn't the Bessmertnova/Lavrovsky DVD the Grigorovich production? That would definitely explain the running time difference

No, it is the Lavrovsky version. There's a later one with Bessmertnova and I think Mukhamedov which is the Grigorovich version.
