Tempi of National and Character Dances

Recommended Posts

The tempi of the national and character dances in the dvd of the 1957 Swan Lake with Plisetskaya seem extraordinarily fast. Was this usual at that time?

One thing I've read is that the film of this Swan Lake performance was shot at 20 frames per second instead of the 24 frames per second used in the West. I'd like to see someone restore this film back to the 20 frames per second mode (which is not hard to do for DVD release) and we'll see the movie at the right tempo.
