Not one for writing reviews, I was so disappointed with the product that I felt it worth the caveat to prospective buyers. I bought this having watched the BBC Swan Lake from the Mariinsky with Gergiev which I thoroughly enjoyed, though some of the 'fancier' camerawork - pulling out as dancer moves upstage, zooms at the expense of the bigger picture that the theatre-goer would get, too much upper torso alone - left me a little dissatisfied. Here it is awful -at least a third - probably more - of it concentrates on the upper torso of the dancers, usually only panning out towards the end of a scene and even then remaining too close. The corps de ballet and the bigger picture are generally sacrificed. I felt the whole thing was far too close. Agreeing with other reviewers - the colour was not great (non-blu-ray format) and the music - with all due respect to Gergiev and the orchestra - was somehow lacklustre . Having said all that, I did enjoy the children dancers of whom there are many in the productioin and my own children - ages 6,8 and 10 enjoyed it a lot. Clearly this is very subjective but I won't be watching it again in a hurry.
