I was on Netflix recently and happened upon a dvd called Russian Ballet Highlights. The best excerpt in my opinion is The Golden Age Act 3 pdd with Bessmertnova and Taranda and is alone worth giving this disc a look see. What I want to know is when will a complete recording of The Golden Age be released? Taranda is such a stylish dancer. :blush:

the whole of this production was telecast, on A&E if mem. serves, around the time of this film's release, w/ bessmertnova, mukhamedov and taranda.

and yes, taranda, was sum'pin...

i haven't heard of this being re-released on dvd. maybe someone else has heard differently.
