Dancing for Dollars: Bolshoi in Vegas / Kirov in Petersburg

2007 Rated NR 1hr 40m

The first segment of this two-part documentary recounts the Bolshoi Ballet's disastrous 1996 stint in Vegas, where they were met with apathetic reception and poor ticket sales. Part 2 traces the erosion of the Kirov Ballet's once-regal image amid allegations of corruption. Funny yet heartbreaking, this film examines the plight of post-Soviet dance troupes coming to grips with the diminished value of artistry and the impact of commercialism.
