Product Description

Based on Gogol's fantastical and comic story of the Devil's antics on Christmas Eve, this magical blend of opera and ballet is brought to vivid life in Francesca Zambello's colourful production. Magnificent set designs (Mikhail Mokrov) and costumes (Tatiana Noginova), and an excellent, largely Russian cast provide authenticity. Splendid dancing by The Royal Ballet and Cossack dancers completes the spectacle. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.

Review

It s pretty as a picture, no question an animated pop-up book of naïve and colourful charm. --Independent

...this expensive-looking production that combines the forces of the Royal Opera and the Royal Ballet... --The Guardian

Convent Garden's 2009 staging by Francesca Zambello makes for a wonderful DVD. Performance and Extras ***** Picture and Sound **** --BBC Music Magazine,Christmas'10

The unknown opera of Tchaikovsky have found a luxury revival thanks to Elaine Padmore. A fairytale in music, original costumes and wonderfull scenography. An unconventional christmas story with all the musical characteristics of the composer.
A story where the devil is drawn by the tail by the male hero, and the whitch a woman with an appetite for live (and men), and where the straightforward villagelife is the positif contrast to the stiff and stylish life at the zarinas court.
Indeed recomendable.

This is a rare outing for a neglected Tchaikovsky opera/ballet. It's a gem. Purist will poor scorn on a first rate score and a magical theme which has everything [including a dancing bear]. Just enjoy a fun piece and never mind the minor floors.
