    Background: THE FAMOUS LENINGRAD COMPANY, THE KIROV BALLET, ENDED ITS FOUR-WEEK SEASON AT LONDON'S ROYAL OPERA HOUSE, COVENT GARDEN, ON SATURDAY.

    THE KIROV'S SEASON OPENED WITH SWAN LAKE -- PROBABLY THE MOST OFTEN DONE OF ALL BALLETS NOW THOUGH IT FAILED AT ITS FIRST PERFORMANCE IN ST. PETERSBURG IN 1877.

    IN THE KIROV VERSION, ONLY THE DANCE MATTERS. THE STAGING IS SIMPLE AND THE STAGE UNCLUTTERED FOR PLENTY OF DANCE SPACE.

    THE KIROV BALLET HAS 120 DANCERS AND THIS WAS ITS SECOND SEASON IN LONDON IN FIVE YEARS.

    THE FILM OF THE EXTRACTS OF THE BALLET WAS MADE BY ARRANGEMENT WITH VICTOR HOCHHAUSER OF LONDON.
