Notes & Reviews:

Today it is difficult to imagine the impact on audiences at the beginning of the 20th century of Serge Diaghilev (1872-1929) and his Ballets Russes. In celebration of the debut of the Ballets Russes in Paris in 1909, this wonderful Stravinsky evening at the Mariinsky Theatre showcases the original Nijinsky version of The Rite of Spring for the first time on DVD along with The Firebird, both conducted by Valery Gergiev. Thanks to the relentless work of Millicent Hodson, Nijinsky's original choreography has now been recreated, performed by the lead dancers and Ballet Company of the Saint Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre conducted by Valery Geriev, known the world over for his interpretation of Stravinsky's works. (Blu-Ray format: will not play in standard DVD players).

" "The picture is stunning in its clarity and dimensionality. The deeply saturated colors of the costumes and sets are gorgeous. The high-resolution surround sound is nearly unbelievable: the best I have heard so far on a Blu-ray disc. This is indeed a historic release. No one with any remote interest in Stravinsky, ballet, or Blu-ray technology should be without it."-Fanfare
