Paris Opera Ballet and Orchestra / Choreography - Nureyev

Release Date:

Agnès Letestu, a feminine and warm Odette, and José Martinez, a convincing, pale, vulnerable prince Siegfried, are the stars of this deeply passionate, `dream` version of Swan Lake. Rudolf Nureyev`s interpretation of Tchaikovsky`s lyrical ballet, far from being a clichéd stereotype of this celebrated masterpiece, is an exposé of astonishingly powerful and recognisable human emotions. Under the inspired and clear-cut musical direction of Vello Pähn, this production of one of the jewels of the Paris Opéra Ballet`s repertoire brilliantly displays the meticulous precision, technical prowess and pure, unmannered style of the company`s unrivalled female corps de ballet, eliciting an ethereal, intense beauty captured for DVD in High Definition video and superb surround sound.
