Marius Petipa, the French Master of Russian Ballet


Denis Sneguirev

A unique documentary on the most popular creator of ballets Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and Cinderella. Born in 1818, Marius Petipa, a French dancer exiled in Russia in the middle of the romantic 19th century, became a ballet master at the court of the tsars. It was there that he would give, for 50 years, until his death in 1903, his letters of nobility to one of the most respected arts of the 20th and 21st centuries: classical dance.
