I am trying to find a video of this ballet. It seems to be available only from the Lincoln Center performing arts library. Does anyone know a place either online, or in Ohio that I might be able to get it? Thanks,Terri

There is (or was) a condensed version (along with Swan Lake (with Ulanova, Sergeyev and Dudinskaya) and Fountains of Baksichirai (with Ulanova and Plisetskaya) on a video called Stars of the Russian Ballet. I don't know if it's still available, but you could do a search on Amazon and find out.
