5.0 out of 5 stars a brilliant set!, 12 May 2011
this box set is great: Paquita is beautiful, and the three choreographied ballets from Roland Petit are magnificient.
this is great value for money, as ONE dvd/ballet at Paris Opera boutique costs the same price.
I'm so glad I bought this.

It is a long documentary on the dancers of the Paris opera. I've seen a few alredy and I think this one is probably the best. What I like about it is that there are NO interviews, everything is filmed as if the camera wasnt there making you feel like you are hiding behind the curtain to look at the dancers rehearsing, or even the dance Director talking about an upcoming event to her subordinates. I really enjoyed it; the only downside is probably the long ballet bit at the end, - beautifully interpreted by Delpine Moussin- but very emotional and probably a bit too long and misplaced in the documentary.
Donizetti: L'Elisir D'Amore (The Elixir of Love) [&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Roberto Alagna
5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely!!, 2 Dec 2010
beautiful interpretation of this melodious and joyful opera, it's Donizetti at his best!
Alagna and Gheorghiu are both very good, and the orchestra is spot on. This is definitely a must have if you like Donizetti and if you want something different.
