    A great poem by Pushkin, now that's for sure . I'll need to get around to hearing the ballet.

    There is a filmed version starring Ulanova and Plisetskaya on DVD. It is an old fashioned Soviet production but well worth watching.

    It was very popular in the old Soviet bloc. I saw it performed by the Mongolian State Ballet.
