Wonderful production of Petipa classic staged by Nureyev,
This review is from: Rudolf Nureyev's La Bayadere [DVD]  (DVD)
Rudolf Nureyev's adieu to the Paris Opera Ballet, shortly his death was a sumptuous staging of Petipa's classic ballet set in India, La Bayadere.
The dancing of the Paris Opera Ballet is exceptionally fine, with all the principal roles strongly taken. The corps de ballet dance the famous shades seen in the third act quite beautifully. Filmed in widescreen with brilliant sound quality and a sensible easy to access screen menu, this DVD is an absolute must have.
