Maurice Bejart has taken his own impression of Tchaikovsky's greatly loved ballet, and turned it into a work of personal significance. Using the original score, but augmenting it with waltz and accordion music, Bejart evokes memories of his own childhood -- transporting the setting from St. Petersburg to Marseilles. Recorded at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris.
