Very sad to see the young Alexander Godunov, who handed in his dinner pail at just 45 with a promising acting career after Witness. But it does add weight to the tragedy of the story behind the ballet. This is pretty old as is Spaghetti Arms Plisetskaya now tho she STILL dances - yes - and well. It contains the Soviet affection for slow motion and multiple frames. Spag Arms did the choreography but she's a better dancer than choreographer so it needs work. The music is very Russian - somewhat akin to that of Prokofiev - as is the great story in which a woman is required to choose between love and her children. Naturally, as Tolstoy was a man, Anna hurls herself in front of an oncoming train after much wrenching of heart and hands. You'd have to read the book for this one to make sense but it's always a treat to see the great Russians show us how it's done. No one dances like Russians. There is nothing at all effeminate in the great male jumpers. They are like great and wonderfully flexible bears. Not to be missed but certainly to be reworked. Time for a new one.
