"Tells the straightforward history of the renowned Ballets Russes troupe from 1929 until its demise in 1962, providing ... commentary, as well as tidbits on ballet aesthetics, backstage gossip and clip after clip of rare footage. It also ... offers portraits of the handful of surviving dancers, most of them in their 80s, who provide its commentary. After a brief review of [the Diaghilev years (1909-29)], it tells the tale of the company after Diaghilev, the story of a troupe renamed, split in two and run by various directors and artists until its demise."--Movie Review: 'Ballets Russes', Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune.

I must watch for anyone interested in the history of ballet. America owes Ballet Russes a debt of gratitude.
