REVIEWS
'The Firebird and Les Noces in revelatory and near definitive versions…' Best DVDs of the Year 2002 The Independent


'More gaping is required with the DVD of two ofsssss Stravinsky's early ballets…captured onstage at Covent Garden last year…Many music lovers may think that they know The Firebird inside out. But without reproductions of the original choreography and the sets and costumes' extraordinary spangle and splash, they have enjoyed only half the experience. Here again are those stabbing notes…but now we see the spectacle they accompany, with dancer David Drew's spindly fingers stretched out, the costume fantastical, gestures tearing the air. The folk rituals of Les Noces, danced against the sparest décor, offer a far different experience, no less enthralling. The joy of this DVD stretches beyond the images. John Carewe brings to his conducting vast experience and love of these pivotal 20th-century scores. And the Royal Opera House Orchestra play like angels, or devils (the music demands both), on top of every nuance, riding every thwack and thrust.'
