Customer Review

on 4 March 2010
Could not wait for the bluray. I just break out in floods of tears when I watch this so words such as fantastic do not do this proper justice! NO PROBLEM Amazon sent me region 0
The discussion with Monica Tamara and Carlos was very moving particularly when Tamara said she used to rush to see her favourite dancer from Cuba perform when she was a young girl! Tamara and Carlos wished they could have met Kenneth MacMillian but had this occurred Kenneth would have asked for Jules Massenet to be present for nobody else could have tinkered with his scores so effectively without being totally besotted by this somewhat underrated composer. Furthermore the roots go deeper as the first few bars are from La Verge first performed at the Palais Garnier home of the Paris ballet and a wonderful ballet from Le Roi De Lahore. Where the loveliest theme from the bedroom scene comes from I have yet to identify but it is of pure sunshine. What they said about the darker side of MacMillians ballets make Massenet and MacMillian kindred spirits.- Mayerling's choreography and Massenet's extreme passionate and lyrical expression in Werther make Mayerling and Werther as close as Manon the opera and Manon the ballet.
When you go to Paris take the Metro to Jardin du Luxembourg. Pay homage at the Massenet Memorial. A truly emotive experience as one metre in front stands a lonely figure of Manon . You may cast a tear or drop flowers but think of the lovely dancers and singers that are our most precious Manons. Tamara you are one of these!
