The Paris Opera dancers can’t be faulted…with Dorothée Gilbert’s spirited Swanilda well partnered by Mathias Heymann as Franz and José Martinez as a handsome Coppélius, nor can Koen Kessels and the Orchestre Colonne.
One gets a good taste of the richness of these very different scores and also a chance to hear this fine orchestra well recorded under an experienced ballet hand. © 2012 Ballet Review
