Editorial Reviews

This special collection brings together three acclaimed Royal Ballet performances of Tchaikovsky's celebrated masterpieces. The tragic and gloriously romantic Swan Lake features compelling dancing from Marianela Nunez and Thiago Soares, while an enchanting and visually striking The Sleeping Beauty, based on the classic 1946 production, showcases The Royal Ballet's inimitable style and virtuosity. Finally, the enduring Christmas favorite The Nutcracker is at its most captivating in Peter Wright's timeless production.

These have the quality of audio/visual that I had hoped for.

I think these are the best productions and performances of Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake that I've ever seen - and I think I own almost every one that's out on DVD.

Got this for my professional ballet dancer and instructor wife. I know everything about ballet from her. Here's what she says about this surprise Christmas gift for 2013. The performances were second to none. Her favorite company is Paris Opera, but she actually had to say that the Royal Ballet's performance of Swan Lake was BETTER than the Paris Opera's blu ray release. All of the 3 performances were filmed properly, meaning the dancers feet were NOT cut off in the shots. This is vital to these video releases and many of them are ruined by poor editing and direction from the producers. The Paris Opera blu ray releases and the Royal Ballet blu ray releases have been good about this. This collection is truly amazing and had her actually weeping at moments from the superb performances by the dancers. In her opinion, The Nutcracker in this set was the best performance of it she had ever seen in her life. That says a lot, she's seen it a thousand times and danced in many herself. All 3 in this collection are completely astounding and a must for your HD ballet collection..worth every cent. The costumes and performances in this collection by the Royal Ballet are stunning on blu ray and a great starter for a girls ballet party at your house (dance students). Also, if you have not yet seen the Royal Ballet's blu ray performance of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, you are in for an unforgettable experience...one of the greatest, unbeatable shows ever. Not enough to be said about this set.

This is a real "Oh my gosh!" selection. I think these are the best productions and performances of Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake that I've ever seen - and I think I own almost every one that's out on DVD. They have stayed very close to the classic choreography, which I particularly appreciate. No ungainly surprises or favorite sections missing or changed. A really great collection to have in your library. You'll go back to them again and again.

These three Tchaikovsky ballets constitute the backbone of the classic 19th century ballet idiom. To the non-ballet world they are about the only names known. Two of them, Swan Lake and Nutcracker were failures when first presented and took years and reworked choreography to be accepted. Only the middle one Sleeping Beauty was a success from it's premiere. At the Bolshoi in 1877, Swan Lake's initial failure was due to lack-luster choreography of Wenzel Reisinger. (A child's version of Swan Lake had been written years before for Tchaikovsky's family's children). A new choreography by Joseph Hansen in 1882 led to 41 performances. Tchaikovsky died in 1893 before seeing a successful revision presented at the Marinski in St Petersburg with choreography by Lev Ivanov (acts 2 & 4) and the great master, Maurice Petipa (acts 1 &3).
The current production at the Royal Opera House London was created by Anthony Dowell premiered in 1947. This present recording was made in March 2009.
For this production, Dowell incorporates sections usually omitted currently from the 1895 Ivanov - Petipa score. Thus the ballet is somewhat longer and the story is filled in with more detail. One change is the cross-bow for hunting the swans is not a gift of ma-ma and another you will note is the children that enter with Odette in act 2. Dowell has also updated the action from Medieval times of the E.T.A. Hoffmann's original tale to the 1880's of Tchaikovsky's era. It all seems to work quite well and the extravagant décor and costumes are quite beautiful. But all would be naught if the soloists and corps were not up to par. They are good; they are superb!
In my dozens of recordings of Swan Lake very few are as satisfactory as the magnificent performance by Marianela Nunez. She is phenomenal!
