"Any snobs who continue to sneer at Minkus must be deaf or daft." The Independent

  • One of TDK's best selling titles, La Bayadère by Ludwig Minkus is released at mid-price.

  • Natalia Makarova's production for the London Royal Ballet was originally created in 1980 for the American Ballet Theatre, the first complete production of La Bayadère to have been performed in the West.

  • The last act has been extensively reconstructed, the work having been performed for many years in its incomplete state, and here features the stellar names of Altynai Asylmuratova, Irek Mukhamedov and Darcey Bussell.

  • John Lanchbery, who arranged the music and who conducts this performance died on 26 February 2003. This production was revived at Covent Garden in October and November 2003 in tribute to him.

"Also benefiting from the revisions is the composer, the often maligned Ludwig Minkus. Heard in its intended order and context, his music's tunefulness, danceable quality and relevance become clear" The Independent
