Notes & Reviews:
This is a BLU-RAY disc and it will not play on a standard DVD player. A standard DVD is available as BOA 0995. Reviving its acclaimed 1946 production, the Royal Ballet of London celebrates its 75th anniversary with this superb version of the Tchaikovsky classic, originally conceived and choreographed by the renowned Marius Petipa. Conducted by Valeriy Ovsyanikov, this lush production stars Alina Cojocaru and Federico Bonelli as the beloved fairytale couple and also features memorable performances from Genesia Rosato and Marianela Nuñez.
”The picture on this Blu-ray disc has the expected improvement in the sharpness and dimensionality, but the high resolution surround sound is even more important than the picture in The Sleeping Beauty. Tchaikovsky’s spectacular symphonic score is perhaps unprecedented in the world of ballet, even more so than Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. It requires high-resolution sound to make its maximum impact, and for that reason more than any other this Blu-ray disc is the way to go.”-FanfareNotes & Reviews:
