Royal Box of the Mariinsky Theatre DVDs

Recommended Posts

I've seen that in Japan there have been several DVDs released under the banner of THE ROYAL BOX OF THE MARIINSKY THEATRE and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about them.

Each DVD seems to focus on a particular dancer:

Svetlana Zakharova

Diana Vishneva

Altynai Assylmuratova and Konstantin Zaklinsky

Igor Zelensky

Yulia Makhalina

Farukh Ruzimatov

Ulyana Lopatkina

As with most Japanese DVDs, they are quite expensive ($45) and they are also quite short (~40min).

Just wondering if anyone knew anything about these before I dropped upwards of $300 on these DVDs....

They must be dvds of a program also known as Czar's Box, that is boradcasted by the russian Kultura channel and usually focuses on a specific Mariinsky dancer.

These programs are usually 40 minutes long. The dance clips are well selected, typically around 15 minutes, the rest is interview and discussion.

I don't know if they're availlable on dvd, but look for the ones presenting Yuri Solovyov and Irina Kolpakova as they're wonderful and, I think, worth the steep price.
