In one of the most ambitious film restoration projects of the century The Russian Ballet Collection is the culmination of a unique, 10-year-plus assignment by RTRWorldwide to remaster and reveal classic Russian ballet productions, and their unparalleled Soviet-era stars, to a wider audience.
Designer Bruno Tilley, represented by Artist Partners, was commissioned on this special mission with the challenge of branding and designing the collection’s packaging.
In a way of enticing a new generation to these old loved classics, he asked fellow Artist Partners illustrator Sharon Pinsker to get involved and the results are stunning.
The collection features 5 DVDs: Giselle, Swan Lake , Don Quixote, Spartacus and The Nutcracker.
Each cover illustrates a dancer from the ballet depicted perfectly in Sharon’s romantic figurative style.
As a whole the DVD set look fabulous and would make a perfect collectors item for any ballet lover. The Ballet Bag obviously agree with us as they have the collection listed under “Five Xmas Gift Ideas” on their website
Sharon’s illustrations have been so well received that the Telegraph has opened a competition with the chance to win a full set of the limited edition prints. The prize draw runs until the 31st January so it is definitely worth entering!
