Steven Bergman
EDGE on the Net, June 2014


The dancers are first-rate…and Schröder’s choreography is primarily modern, with Matthias Foremny keeping a consistent accompaniment conducting the Gewandhausorchester with the live score. An engaging project about an amazing talent, preserved on disc for all generations to enjoy. © 2014 EDGE on the Net Read complete review


Lawrence D. Devoe, MD, May 2014

This 2013 Leipzig Opera House production gives us a definitive performance of this ballet…The use of two dancers for the title role conveys effectively the duality of the Chaplin persona…

Images are crisp and clean with nice colors. The cameras do a decent job…

The show is stolen, not surprisingly, by the amazing performance of dancer Waller whose Little Tramp is spot on…I can state unreservedly that I thoroughly enjoyed this production…Approach with an open mind and you will get a great watch. © 2014 Read complete review

Fulvue Drive-in, May 2014

Chaplin is not another retelling of the story of the man and artist, but an impressive ballet about the legendary, groundbreaking filmmaker that runs a nice 100 minutes and is more savvy than expected with fine dancing, iconic images and the politics he eventually had to deal with. Mario Schroder wrote this work and clearly gets what the man and his art was about. © 2014 Fulvue Drive-in Read complete review

Audiophile Audition, April 2014

The use of many different music cues during the ballet is one of its most fascinating aspects…they seem to flow well into one another and sound like a thru-composed score.

The video was shot during a live production at the Leipzig Opera House…and is beautifully filmed with an excellent soundtrack. It rekindles a new appreciation of the genius of Chaplin. © 2014 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
