From Russia with Art

Passionate ambassadors on a mission to promote Russia’s cultural heritage

Diaghilev’s Les Saisons Russes started a fascination with Russian culture that continues to this day. An RTD documentary examines the work of Russian cultural outposts – a classical ballet school in the Netherlands, an art gallery in Denmark, and a winery in France – all popularising the Russian artistic legacy. Boris Eifman, Valeriy Gergiev, Mikhail Shemyakin and Vladimir Spivakov share their thoughts on why Russian and Soviet artists, composers and choreographers continue to be relevant and loved around the world.
