Editors Note
Note Five rising stars in Russian ballet are put in the spotlight in this documentary. From their posts at the famed Mariinski Theatre (formerly the Kirov), the young women reflect on their art and the long, difficult path they have trod in pursuing it. Meanwhile, footage of performances--Alina Somova, Svetlana Zakharova, Diana Vishneva, Ulyana Lopatkina, and Evgenia Obraztsova--shows their astonishing talents in action.
Box Office "With an appropriately workmanlike method, Normand moves through the Ballet Academy's audition process, following the students' transformations into prima ballerinas." 02/01/2009
Washington Post "[A]t the highest level of the profession, the unvarnished reality of a dancer's life contains plenty of genuine theater, as proved in Bertrand Normand's jewel of a documentary, BALLERINA." 03/06/2009
Los Angeles Times "[A] beautiful snapshot of ballet life, Russian style, and a tribute to five particular ballerinas..." 04/17/2009
