Love, war, erotica, hatred and passion are the basic ingredients of this ballet inspired by the 15th century chivalric novel Tirant lo Blanc. The composer Leonora Milà and the Russian dancer and choreographer Iuri Petukhov are co-authors of the spectacular production which had its première in Saint Petersburg and was filmed by the cinema director Antoni Ribas. The work of the St. Petersburg State Ballet company earned the praise of critics and audience alike for their fine performance of the Tirant lo Blanc. Thanks to this success they performed during five consecutive years at the Mussorgsky Theatre and at the Gran Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona as well. Now you will have the opportunity to enjoy a magnificent performance of this ballet again, thanks to a fully-restored DVD copy released for the first time.
