An historic performance by the legendary Galina Ulanova highlights this lush production of the ever-popular ballet. Choreographed by Leonid Lavrovsky and conducted by world famous Gennadi Rozhdestvensky, this film is rich in detail and characterized by it's lovely interior and exterior location work. Yuri Zhdanov is the young Romeo to Ulanova's unforgettable Juliet. A great ballet is here filmed paying great attention to all the values: musical, choreographic and scenic. This remastered version eliminates the narration that heretofore had interrupted Prokofiev's score at critical points in the ballet.
