A wondrous celebration of dance, Terence Young's BLACK TIGHTS is a collection of four lavish musicals staged by Roland Petit's Ballet de Paris and filmed in vibrant Technicolor. With introductions by Maurice Chevalier (GIGI), BLACK TIGHTS is favored by the sly wit and artistic innovation of the European musical stage, enlivened by the talents of the legendary Cyd Charisse (SINGIN' IN THE RAIN) and Moira Shearer (THE RED SHOES).

The Dances:

  • La Croqueuse de Diamants - with Zizi Jeanmarie
  • Cyrano de Bergerac - with Moira Shearer
  • Deuil en 24 heures - with Cyd Charisse
  • Bizet's Carmen - with Zizi Jeanmarie, Roland Petit
