This is the version authorized by the Ballet Russe of one of the favorite ballets created by Stravinsky. The introductory material tells something of the history and significance of the ballet, and of the famous Russian composer. Then the story is told which the dancers recreate on the stage, with the theme music introduced to link it to the music. This is the story of the ballerina and her two lovers, the crippled Petrouchka and the cruel Moor. A rather specialized market. Tie up with recordings.
