Table of Contents
Swan lake: Act II [excerpts] (ca. 15 min.) / choreography, Aleksandr Gorski and Lev Ivanov, to music by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky ; danced by Yelena Riabinkina (Odette), Vladimir Tikhonov (Prince Siegfried), Aleksandr Begak (Rothbart, the evil magician), Tamara Vetrova, Vera Mitrayeva, and Lesma Chadarayn (three swans), Tatiana Mokrova, Nelly Popova, Tatiana Popko, and Natalia Filippova (four cygnets), and corps de ballet. House program on frame mistakenly identifies this as the Act III pas de deux, which the company presented on a different program.

Khokhlov's name and photograph are given in Dr. Truppin's filmed credits although the house program on frame lists Vladimir Nikonov.
Russian dance [excerpt] (ca. 3 min.) / choreography, Vladimir Varkovitsky, to folk music ; danced by Larissa Trembolvelskaya and Nikolai Simachev.
Don Quixote: Act IV, grand pas de ballet [excerpts] (ca. 13 min.) / choreography, Aleksandr Gorski, to music by Ludwig Minkus ; danced by Raissa Struchkova and Gennadi Lediakh, with Maya Samokhvalova, Yelena Riabinkina, Ella Kosterina, Tatiana Mokrova, Nelly Popova, and Neli Golovina.
