Excerpt: I really thought this was a DVD is BD clothing. If you have watched other ballet BDs from the ROH for example, you will be terribly disappointed in the technical quality of this. There is a lot of grain, the picture is often blurred though once or twice it become close to what we expect from BD.
Excerpt: The main review spells this out pretty well. In so many ways it is an exciting and beautifully danced performance. My main reservation is the way in which Nureyev emphasises strong male sexuality in the rather too explicit choreography of the male dancers.
Excerpt: This classic production has been a regular part of the Royal Ballets offerings for a long time now and its easy to see why ie its a brilliant production. Thats not to say that its not now looking a bit tired and faded - it is - but the choreography of Kenneth MacMillan remains flawless especially...
Excerpt: It is hard to fault this disc other than in the extras area where none are offered. An interview with the excellent dancers would have been nice. The dancing is always very good and in most cases quite outstanding.
Summary: A beautiful stunning film, heartbreak, true love danger, this film takes you on a roller-coaster of emotions with such powerful dialogue and superb acting. There has not been a better version in my opinion. This is a definite for the film library.
