The best of everything,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Evening With The Royal Ballet (Highlights From Royal Ballet) (Various Artists) (Opus Arte: OA1087D) [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
This is a pleasure: it is the best extracts from various Royal Ballet performances.. They have cherry-picked the best from each ballet and it highlights the quality and diversity of its company. The only ballet I am not happy with is Swan Lake: not because of the dancers but because of the production. It is over elaborate and overcrowded and what happened to the jester? The best recording is the one commissioned by the BBC of the Marinsky Ballet. It is exquisitely danced and the stage is never over crowded. The Royal Ballet stag is too small for such an elaborate setting and so many actors. Also Siegfried, dressed in navy, is often difficult to see.
