This is a very old version of ballet dancing. Given the today's HDTV & stereo equipment, the library should buy a better version, such as 2014 or 2015 version from one of the top 10 ballet companies.

This is a magnificent film of the full-length ballet Don Quixote. Choreographer and co-director Rudolph Nuryev's vision was so expansive, that the film had to be produced in an airplane hangar. The high energy, colorful production is beautifully restored here, with vibrant colors. As a dancer, the great Nuryev is at his peak, causing you to gasp at his great leaps and athleticism. Australian ballerina Lucette Aldous is a worthy partner, a dynamo with brilliant technique. As Don Quixote, Robert Helpmann is elegant and touching. This film has been called "the finest full-length dance film ever," and it certainly rates this accolade.
