I'll start by saying that I don't know anything technical about ballet. I just like to watch it and am always impressed by their amazing athletic ability and the knowledge that making something look effortless takes unbelievable effort.

Having said that, I have watched other ballet performances that these were excerpts of and thought this one was just ok for the most part.

I did not enjoy Nigel. In the beginning , the Swan Pas de Deux was wonderful. But, in the later performances I was disappointed. Wendy is always on topic. No doubt she sees.. But, I did not like the comments about Don Q. As if it was too frivolous. Butt, watch the performance. I have danced this & it is very difficult & audiences love it. But, the female performance, forgive me, was Re- choreographed . Why? I have started seeing it in the theatre too. Are dancers not up to it? Has the ability declined? Are we promoting too soon? . Most likey, funding plays a part. Until we value our arts in the US , we will lose a vital part of ourselves.

...marvelous! My daughter and I wanted a video that was educational and a joy to watch--and this gets 5 stars on both counts. A great montage of historical clips, interviews, and beautiful performance.

If they had produced a blue-ray we would have purchased that, too!

Outstanding dancing and superb commentary. I've had this video only a couple days and I've already watched it four times. Each time I found another reason to love it.

Lots of interesting information about the history of dance - including choreography and music. BEAUTIFUL DANCING preceded by comments from the dancers, which are fascinating. Cinematography is excellent. I can't get enough! What a beautiful art form!
