1994 NR

Russian composer Peter Tchaikovsky wrote the celebrated opera "Pique Dame" in 1890, based on a novella by Alexander Pushkin. Choreographer Roland Petit enlists the famed Bolshoi Ballet to revisit the piece he created many years earlier for the legendary Mikhail Baryshnikov. The video includes interviews with stars Nikolay Tsiskaridze and Ilze Liepa -- widely considered the world's best dancers -- and with Petit.
