Notes & Reviews:
This is a BLU-RAY disc and will not play on a standard DVD player. A DVD release is available as BOA 1008. Based on the Alexandre Dumas novel that also inspired the stories of Verdi's 'La Traviata' and Hollywood's 'Moulin Rouge', John Neumeier creates a riveting dance drama around the famous woman of lore, 'La Dame aux camelias'. The passionate tale of Marguerite Gautier and Armand Duval unfolds ingeniously through a drama-within-a-drama as they meet at the theatre during a performance of 'Manon Lescaut'. So begins their romantic adventures in Paris, brought to life by Neumeier's intense and refined choreographic language. Chopin's ravishing music highlights this exceptional neo-classical ballet, featuring the star dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet.Notes & Reviews:
