The Bolshoi Ballet delivers a beautiful performance of this famous work with outstanding contributions by its principals and corps de ballet.
Tchaikovsky’s perennial favorite ballet, The Sleeping Beauty, gets a big-time production from the Bolshoi company. Lead dancer David Hallberg is simply spectacular and is reason enough to go for this blu-ray disc.
Giselle, one of the most popular of the classic ballet repertory, receives an enjoyable if not outstanding performance by the Bolshoi Ballet company. Videography and sound recording are excellent, enhancing the less than ideal Grigorovich choreography.
The Bolshoi Ballet has mounted a less conventional, but visually and dramatically effective production of the beloved Tchaikovsky ballet. This Nutcracker has many magic moments with excellent sound and visual recording.
