One of the very best Swan Lake's.
on 29 January 2014
This is the old production of the Royal Ballet's Swan Lake,and FAR superior to the present Royal Ballet production.
Natalia Markarova is superb,as is Anthony Dowell. This production uses much more of the Tchaikovsy score,and Act 4 is Sir Fredrick Ashton's choreography which is more dramatic than the new production ( which cuts the score drastically.)
If you are looking to purchase Swan Lake,I strongly recommend this version over the new Royal Ballet "edited" version.
