This clip chosen to be G
In this brief colour sequence from the ballet Thamar, Thamar seduces a man whom she is going to lure to her castle before killing him.
With exotic, lush designs and costuming this colour sequence brings to life the Ballets Russes performances in a way that black-and-white film does not. Shot from a higher, sharper angle to the stage by Murray-Will, this clip is still vivid in its detail.
Thanks to the generosity of the rights holders, we are able to offer Thamar from the home movie Monte Carlo Russian Ballet. Original Ballet Russe as a high quality video download.
To play the downloadable video, you need QuickTime 7.0, VLC, or similar.
