Director: Ringland Anderson
The Ballet Russo, under the direction of the legendary Colonel de Basil , visited Melbourne several times during the period of 1936 to 1940.
Dr. Ringland Anderson, a ballet lover and expert amateur cameraman, shot over 12 hours of 16mm. silent film during the performances, some of it on rare Agfacolour.
Sixty minutes of this footage has been edited into sequences of scenes, with an emphasis on the performances of the ballerinas of the troupe. Ross Campbell selected suitable music to form a back- ground to this unique record of the company's appearance in Melbourne.
