Product DescriptionThe Bolshoi symbol of Russia, a national treasure and one of the most famous institutions in the world. Recently, however, the theatre has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons: intrigue, personal attacks and management changes have created lurid headlines. Now, for the first time, the theatre directors have allowed the backstage process to be documented. With unparalleled behind the scenes access, the film will pay tribute to the dancers' extraordinary artistic and athletic talents, their abiding fear of injury and the ruthless ambition needed to survive in the world's most famous ballet company. "Bolshoi Babylon" is a behind-the-scenes look into Moscow's prestigious Bolshoi Theatre and how it was rocked by an acid-attack scandal by Pavel Dmitrichenko in 2013. Blu-ray features surround sound, the official "Bolshoi Babylon" trailer, exclusive Director and Producer Interview, Deleted and Extended Scenes: Veterans Day, Programme Seller, Ludmila Semenyaka and Anastasia Meshkova at Home. Blu-ray comes in Russian with English subtitles.
