This review is from: Don Quixote [DVD]  (DVD)
After La Fille Mal Gardee, Don Quixote was a shock. Talk about a lavish OTT production from the American Ballet
Theatre. Every thing looked so big and bright, the costumes and backgrounds superb in detail and design.
The music was wonderful, the dancing, in parts, was very stiff if not wooden and some of the 'happy crowd scenes'
Looked anything but with only the 2 Principal dancers ( Cynthia Harvey and Mikhail Baryshnikov )
looking as if they were enjoying themselves. In fact if it were not for the superb dancing of Harvey and ( especially )
Baryshnikov this production would not even rate the 4 stars I am giving it.
So, slightly disappointed - I will now try the third title - Giselle.
Of the DVD itself - the soundtrack was crisp and the picture clear, if not a bit bright in places
- I wonder is this has been transferred from NTSC.?
