Sounds like a potential winner.

They are preparing another major revival -- the 1st well-known Soviet ballet 'hit' on the 1920s, Gliere's 3-act Red Poppy
Luckily, films of the most important dances remain, e.g., Sailor's Dance, Dream of Tao Hoa, Boston Waltz
Really? How extraordinary!

I don't know about the 1920s version but the 1940s Bolshoi reworking was definitely filmed, starring Ulanova (from which the 'Dream' scene comes).
I've also seen silent clips of the 1930s Kirov Act I (scene of the ship in the Chinese port), starring Elena Lukom.
In other words, 'stuff' exists.
