Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Minkus: La Bayadere [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The Paris Opera Ballet is without peer (apart from its obtuse unwillingness to promote Emmanuel Thibault to etoile!) If I could award this bluray disc more than five stars I would. This recording has been my favourite on DVD for years. Now that it is out on bluray I would say that perfection has almost been improved upon. The etoiles and the corps have always been superb in this performance but the new format enables the scenery, costumes and music to be enjoyed all the more. Having seen "La Bayadere" at the Oprea Garnier in May of this year I would say this disc captures the essence of the experience and more besides. Buy it now!
When can we expect to see "La Belle au Bois Dormant", "Casse Noisette", "Don Quichotte" and "Raymonda" similarly produced?
