A ballet which will appeal to most people.,
This review is from: Herold: La Fille Mal Gardee [Blu-Ray] [DVD]  (Blu-ray)
This is such a wonderful ballet which should appeal to most people. Sir Frederick Ashton's version has been long regarded as the definitive version of this ballet. Everything is just so enjoyable - the music, the warm-hearted comedy, the colourful costumes and most of all the wonderful choreography.
Nunez and Acosta are absolutely superb in their respective roles and to my eye there is nothing more thrilling than the Fanny Elssler Pas de Deux in the first Act. I could watch this again and again each time marvelling at the dancers skill and stamina.
On Blu-ray the picture quality is superb and the sound excellent. If you only have one ballet in your collection I would recommend purchasing this one. It is a decision you will not regret. I blame the 2nd Opus Arte sampler disc for making me buy this disc - and others!
