I was highly satisfied with Bourne's video of the 1995 production, but I am much more satisified
with this latest production. The magnificent overture alone, foreboding everything that is to come, was worth the price of the ticket. The choreography and musical numbers appear more current. The production will be best appreciated by viewers well versed on the swan myth and the oedipal conflict at the center of the story. The actors were a pleasure for the eyes and the acting was truly superior. The emotional music was excellently translated in the choreography.I took two friends of mine to the show, both full fledged addicts to the regular Swan Lake ballet. All three of us were delighted. however, we would have appreciated a short intermission, perhaps, before The Grand Ball scene. I will certainly view this movie production again and again!
