This trailer was made for domestic consumption without subtitles, but the video shows Anna Nikulina rehearsing Phrygia in Spartacus with Lyudmila Semenyaka.

Thanks for the link to such an interesting video! The final image, of the ballet projected into a stadium, was particularly striking. I wonder if this has ever happened? Or is it just an imagination of how popular and widespread the ballet is, and how the cinema projections will make the ballet available to everyone.

I'd guess it's a reference to the Spartak soccer team.

Oh of course! Can't believe I didn't think of that.
