Gayne Ballet DVD
Aram Khachaturian's Cold War-era masterwork, a four-act ballet from 1942, celebrates life on a Soviet farm collective with the simple story of a young woman who prevents a spy from breaching army territories. This production choreographed by Boris Eifman reworks the original narrative to focus on the relationships between the principal characters. Larisa Tuisova, Alexander Rumyantsev dance the key roles. 81 min. Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; bonus footage.
