5.0 out of 5 stars Best Version on DVD January 15, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a huge fan of Russian ballet, and The Sleeping Beauty in general, this DVD is the best full length Beauty we have available. Until they wise up and film the current Kirov/Mariinsky reconstruction fot he original 1890 production (you can find a glorious performance of Act III on the DVD New Year's Eve in St Petersburg), this probably will remain the best filmed version despite worthy and interesting productions on DVD from the Royal Ballet nad the Bolshoi.

This is the production Konstantin Sergeyev premiered in 1953, and has remained in the repertoire of the Kirov/Marrinsky since then and is something of a classic in its own rights. It's also, arguably but to my mind, the most faithful to the original Petipa choreography we have. Yes Sergeyev replaced a lot of the mime and made some other changes (some of which, like the new male variations, are, while far from authentic, admirable additions), but we get the basic text of this ballet down to all of the charming wedding divertisements, most not performed in the West.

Kolpokova was nearing the end of her career when this was filmed in 1983, and I admit the idea of a 50 year old Aurora can be off putting--but the lady dances spectacularly and is a great and welcome presence. Everyone else is in fine form--the men and the classic female corps of the Kirov in particular.

A must for any classic ballet lovers and Sleeping Beauty fans out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bujones Will Never Disappoint! April 14, 2006
Format:DVD
This is one of the finest Sleeping Beauties on dvd. It has been out for quite a while on vhs and has just come out on dvd. Fernando Bujones was one of the finest dancers of the late 20th century and to see him perform his own choreography in his solos here is breathtaking! His Princess Aurore is played by Maryse Egasse. She puts in a fine performance also, but I find her style a bit too soft, lacking crispness and definition, but it still works for her. The other fairy soloists were more to my liking and even Carabosse, played by Elba Rey, is danced on pointe beautifully. The Bluebird variation is also fantastic. Unlike the companion dvd of Coppelia, released at the same time(see my review of it), the sound and image quality here are very good, as is the camera work. This is very close to the top of my list of Sleeping Beauties. Its release coincides with the untimely death of Fernando Bujones and the ballet community, his friends, and his family will miss him dearly. This dvd is a great remembrance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Perfection April 16, 2006
Format:DVD
The ballerinas in this production by the Kirov are dazzling. One wonders how one company can have so many dancers operating at such a high level of brilliance. The set for Act 2 - enormous background paintings in fall colors - stands out in particular. But it is the dancing of the Corps, along with the individual fairies and Aurora herself, that make the viewing of this DVD a reason to go on living.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful April 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have always liked Fernando Bujones, one of the finest dancers ever. The whole performance was on stage and very intimate. The company was fabulous, great costumes and sets! I do recommend it highly to anyone who likes classical performances, especially for young girls that are dancing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Performances October 25, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This may not be a first rate performance in terms of comparison with World Class companies, but it provides a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Bujones, takes the stage with the authority of a Master but the work of the Prima Ballerina, is equal to the demands of the production as is the dancing of the remainder of the cast drawn from the ranks of the Ballet del teatro Municipal of Chile, the hosts for the production.
For those who will buy only the very best this may be flawed; however, for those who have a desire to see what is being done in the rest of the world, there will be no disappointment in purchasing and viewing this DVD.
