October 6, 2005 | Rating: 4/5

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.

...entirely superfluous.

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.

October 8, 2005

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.
