This production is a 'must see' and a 'must have' so you can watch it again and again like I did! Not only Patrick Dupond and Marie-Claude Pietragalla are world class dancers, they both live their role and project so much emotion it brought tears to my eyes. The way she performs as Odette is divine perfection and her performance of the contrasting role of Odile is just amazing. What a wonderful partnership supported by the world's best corps de ballet!
I have to mention though that I was not impressed with the decor, especially in Act 1. Perhaps it's because I have always seen Swan Lake performed with the flamboyant and traditional decor! However, after watching for a few minutes, the decor was no longer important. All I could focus on was the outstanding performance, the gorgeous costumes and impressive special effects!
Get this DVD, you won't regret it!
