5.0 out of 5 stars A superb production - a "must have" for any collection, 28 Sep 2009
This review is from: Prokofiev - Romeo and Juliet [Blu-ray] [2007] [2009] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Being familiar with the music for many years, seeing it in its original dancing context was a revelation. It gives much more meaning to the subtle nuances in the composition and reveals a story of deep pathos and emotion. This emotional message is helped in this superb production by the excellent music from the Royal Ballet Sinfonia conducted by Boris Gruzin - it is BD audio at its best. There is less focus on athletic showmanship than on translating emotion through dance and mime and the lovely Tamara Rojo portrays a Juliet with such sadness as to bring tears to the eyes. I classify this as one of the best of the new Blu Ray productions and one which excels in all areas. Recommended without reservation.
