«The stone flower (Lyudmilla Semenyaka-Nicolai Dorokhov, Bolshoi Ballet 1990)»
AVI | 1,26 GB | 48 kHz, MP3 2 ch, 256.00 kbps avg | 640x464 (1.38:1), 25 fps, DivX Codec 5.1.1, 1379 kbps avg

This three-act ballet occupied Prokofiev near the end of his life. Prokofiev took the fairy tale The Stone Flower as his ballet subject; it came from a collection of stories about the miners in the Ural mountains. The ballet is quite philosophical and much pantomime is required to bring out the complicated plot. At the base of it, sculptor Danila is torn between perfecting his art and his love of Katerina. The Mistress of the Copper Mountain offers her minerals as well as herself to him but in the end Danila chooses Katerina and one of those big wedding celebrations so important to many ballets concludes the work.
