1987: La Esmeralda, Fracci as Kschessinskaya
Posted 21 January 2013 - 07:03 AM
"ESMERALDA, with Carla Fracci as Matilde Kschessinska and Stephen Jeffries as Nicolas Legat.
In 1987 a two-part television programme called The Ballerinas featured Carla Fracci with some of the top male dancers of the period in a series of reconstructions, putting various ballets and their interpretors in an historical context. Fracci was an amazingly youthful 51 when she danced these extracts."

And it looks as though some of the artifacts of photography and film (varying speed of the camera) have been incorporated into the reconstruction
