This version of ballet Esmeralda, choreographed by Vladimir Burmeister in 1950s or 1960s, is performed by Stanislavsky Ballet located in Moscow (full name: Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre in Moscow).
Music, composed by Cesare Pugni, has been reworked by Soviet composer Reinhold Gliere and also contains additions by Sergei Vasilenko.

The ballet tells of a young Parisian street dancer named Esmeralda, kidnapped as an infant by gypsies, who has captured the eye (and lust) of both Phoebus, Captain of the King's Archers, and a worldly priest named Claude Frollo, the Archdeacon of Notre Dame Cathedral. Esmeralda falls for the handsome Phoebus and spurns the advances of Frollo, who takes his revenge by implicating her in an attempted murder of Phoebus, an act that he himself has committed. Esmeralda dies on the gallows, but Frollo soon meets his own death, thrown from a tower of Notre Dame by the cathedral's deformed bell ringer, Quasimodo.

Ballet has been lately revived and now is nominated to Golden Mask award, the most prestigous theatre award in Russia. Here I present fragments of previous version, recorded in 2005. Probably the only difference is set design, both costumes and choreography are untouched.

In this part you can see Fleur-de-Lys and Pheobus pas de deux from II act.
Fleu-de-Lys - Anastasia Pershenkova
Phoebus - Dmitry Zababurin
