This classic ballet deserves to be in everyone's collection. The music is, of course, gorgeous and on the Blu-ray disc there are 2 audio options to choose - PCM 5.1 and PCM 2.0. Both versions are very satisfactory although my preference is for the former which provided a good dynamic range and excellent clarity. A demonstration quality disc!
The video quality is absolutely superb and the level of detail is amazing - all the better to enjoy the wonderful costumes of this traditional ballet. Much as I enjoy any live performance, after experiencing Blu-ray discs of this quality it is always disappointing to miss all the detail which you get from the most expensive seat in the house - in your own living room! Money cannot buy this unique seat.
It is perhaps unfair to single out any individual for specific praise but Marianela Nunez was especially fabulous in her role as the Lilac Fairy. All the Principal artists are world class.
There are no extras on the disc other than a useful synopsis and cast gallery. The disc comes with a very informative booklet. Thoroughly recommended.
