Wonderful performance, but intrusive audience
on 21 December 2012
Superb dancing, with Puck seemingly defying gravity. His lightness and precision of movements are a joy to watch.
Nice dreamy setting.
Beautiful costumes, although I feel that Titania's dress lacks a bit of impact, perhaps too pale. Oberon's costume is very striking in comparison.
I drop a star like I. Giles because this DVD is too expensive for a 54 minute playing time while you can buy a box of 3 DVDs for much less.
But I also drop a star for the silly applauses not only at the end of each « number », but sometimes in the middle of it, covering the music. It's tacky and distracting, turning this beautiful ballet into some kind of circus.
