Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - The Nutcracker Suite: Dance of the Sugar
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - The Nutcracker Suite: Dance of the Sugar Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (May 7, 1840 -- November 6, 1893) was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. His wide ranging output includes symphonies, operas, ballets, instrumental and chamber music and songs. He wrote some of the most popular concert and theatrical music in the classical repertoire, including the ballets Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, the 1812 Overture, his First Piano Concerto, his last three numbered symphonies, and the opera Eugene Onegin.

The Trepak, or Russian dance, is one of the most recognizable pieces in the ballet, along with the famous Waltz of the Flowers and March, as well as the ubiquitous Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. The ballet contains surprisingly advanced harmonies and a wealth of melodic invention that is (to many) unsurpassed in ballet music. Tchaikovsky made a selection of eight of the numbers from the ballet before the ballet's December 1892 premiere, forming The Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71a, intended for concert performance. The suite was first performed, under the composer's direction, on 19 March 1892 at an assembly of the St. Petersburg branch of the Musical Society. The Nutcracker Suite should not be mistaken for the complete ballet. The outline below represents the selection and sequence of the ...

The stylish grandeur of choreographer and artistic director Oleg Vinogradov's production shows the entire company at its best. The highest tradition in dance continues with Larissa Lezhnina, one of Kirov's brightest new talents, brilliant as Princess Aurora, and Farukh Ruzimatov's performance in the role of Prince Desire demonstrates both power and grace. It may be a truism to say that Russians interpret Russian music best, but based on this stunning Kirov Ballet performance it's excitingly and exhilaratingly accurate. From the principal dancers to the last member of the ensemble, the grace and mastery of this world-class company is clearly in evidence. www.naxos.com

Swan Lake - Chinese Acrobatic Ballet-Part10
Swan Lake - Chinese Acrobatic Ballet-Part10 With breathtaking perfection and grace the "Guangdong Acrobatic Troupe of China" tells the fairytale on the verge of human physical abilities. More than 100 acrobats and dancers show their world-famous art in gorgeous and colorful stage designs and props. They are juggling with balls while they perform a toe dance. Gym wheels seem to waltz and acrobats thrill the audience by "dancing" as frogs for several minutes solely on their hands. There seems to be no gravity, when the princess (Wu Zhengdan) is dancing en pointe not only on the shoulder of her beloved prince (Wei Baohua), but also on his head. This production of "Swan Lake" unites power, perfection and grace in a magical way. In wonderful stage designs, classical music and tradition of ballet melt with Eastern acrobatic to a unique show
