The Glory of the Kirov is a collection of excerpts from the history of this legendary ballet company from Saint Petersburg, Russia - taken from the productions which made the troupe an international sensation. The recording dates span from 1920 to 1974. An incomparable aesthetic matched with technical perfection.

The Kirov Ballet is considered - alongside the Bolshoi - one of Russia’s most important ballet companies. Originally known as the Imperial Russian Ballet, it became known as the Kirov Ballet from 1935 onwards, when the Mariinsky Theater - the ensemble’s home stage - was also so renamed. Since 1991, it has officially been the Mariinsky Ballet. When touring, however, the more well-known name ‘Kirov Ballet’ is sometimes still used.

The dancers are:
Mikhail Baryshnikov, Boris Bregvadze, Vadim Budarin, Nikita Dolgushin, Natalia Dudinskaya, Lubov Galinskaya, Tamara Karsavina, Irina Kolpakova, Gabriela Komleva, Ludmilla Kovaleva, Ninel Kurgapkina, Askold Makarov, Natalia Makarova, John Markovski, Olga Moiseyeva, Galina Kekisheva, Tatiana Legat, Gennady Selyutsky, Yuri Soloviev, Rudolf Nureyev, Alla Osipenko, Vladilen Semenov, Konstantin Sergeyev, Alla Sizova, Sergei Vikulov, Yelena Yevteyeva and Irina Zubkovskaya.

The glory is when they changed their name back to Mariinsky Ballet from that of Stalin's hack. There was nothing to celebrate about Mr. Kirov.

Terrible omission: you don’t put the name of the coreographers.
