"Bolshoi Golden Age Video?"
 
   I desperately want to buy a videotape of the Bolshoi's performance of "The Golden Age" (or "The Age of Gold" as it is sometimes called) by Shostakovich. The performance was, I believe. in 1987. It was shown once on US TV from tape and was spectacular. I have tried most of the obvious big video outlets. Any help you can give me will be most appreciated

I have a copy; don't remember now where it came from. I would like to hang onto it, as it has a very young and very spectacular Irek in it. However, you are very welcome to borrow it and keep it for some time. If you would like to, just let me know. Don't know where you are based, but if you are a Covent Garden regular, I could meet you there sometime and pass on the video.

Kind regards
Barbara

   Barbara,
Thank you for your kind and most generous offer of a loan of your tape. Unfortunately, there is the complication that I live in the United States. Anyhow, you should probably guard that film with your life as I understand its distribution was stopped some time ago. I taped much of the performance off the TV. My copy is of mixed quality as well as incomplete. What I better do is wait a bit to see if someone knows of an outlet that may still have that video for sale. I would be reluctant to risk damage or loss of your copy since it may be irreplaceable. My e-mail address is edickins@capecod.net.
