This review is from: Swan Lake: Wiener Symphoniker (Nureyev) [DVD]  (DVD)
The cor d'ballet is awful. The costumes and sets are atrocious. The choreography (Nureyev's variation is bizzare and troublesome). Yes young Nureyev dances with bravura and as a historical record one might want to watch these moments, but to view the whole DVD is a painful and tedious experience. There are much better versions available; my favorite is The Royal Ballet version with Markova and Anthony Dowell. Avoid this version.
