The Mariinsky theater (also known as the Kirov) of St. Petersburg has somehow maintained its artistic excellence through war, revolution and the collapse of Communism.Narrated by Emmy Award-winning actor Richard Thomas, SACRED STAGE tells the astonishing story of the Mariinsky's survival, illustrated with stunning performances from the opera and ballet, as well as candid interviews with luminaries, scholars and performers. -- © First Run Features

Waltezky has made a film that's too insubstantial for performing-arts buffs to embrace and too effete for the rest of us to tolerate.
There is old and new here, great artists, great traditions and a kind of paradoxical survival story.
Fans of Russian ballet may be enthralled, but might as well wait until the movie inevitably ends up on PBS.
With so much history and so many artistic struggles to explore, on this Stage, you're left waiting for another act that's never unveiled.
