Enjoyed the performance of Swan Lake from St. Petersburg Russia. The host of the even could have been a little more polished, but the camera action was fantastic. We have seen The Nutcracker the same way as well as an Opera. Very convenient way to keep the kids cultured.

I enjoyed this Swan Lake performance very much. Ekaterina Kondaurova did well, although she isn't the best I've seen. Timur Askerov was okay, but I don't think he has the Vaganova style that most Mariinsky dancers have. The Mariinsky is considered the best ballet company in the world and this was a "good" performance, but they have done better. I still loved getting a chance to see the Mariinsky on screen, so that is why I am saying, "Must go...." People who have never seen them live in person should definitely go to this!

Simply exquisite! Great to be up front and personal with the cast and conductor, while it was actually happening in Russia. Just love Live HD shows!

I liked it but my wife loved it. Only for true ballet lovers though.

A beautiful production. The dancers were technically perfect and passionately dramatic.
The sets and costumes were also exquisite. The gorgeous score was performed outstandingly with the exact tempos for each dancer.
Bravo to all involved.
