I am very eagerly looking forward to ABT's upcoming performances of The Flames of Paris pdd. I find it very charming and not yet done to death.

Carbro :lol: I have heard the music to Flames of Paris Pas de deux, on a Bolshoi CD I have in my music collection. It is very impressive. However, is this the same as the Esmeralda P.D.D. ? I used to have this on an old Video, taken at a Gala performance in the Business Exhibition Centre, when the Bolshoi came to London a very long time ago. This was very lovely , sensitive leading from Esmeralda's sadness into happiness when she dances with a tambourine. Are we talking about the same Ballet, or am I on a totally different wave length?

Another suggestion Anyuta (Choreography Vasiliev) danced by himself and Ekaterina Maximove, can be seen on the DVD Essential Ballet, staged at Covent Garden and in Red Square, Moscow. Plus the Leaves are fading(Tudor) on the same DvD Altynai Asl. and her husband Konstatin Zaklinsky.
