MACMILLAN, K.: Histoire de Manon (L') [Ballet] (Royal Ballet, 2018) (NTSC)
OA1285D [DVD]
The Royal Ballet
Kenneth MacMillan’s Manon

Sarah Lamb • Vadim Muntagirov
Jules Massenet, Music
Orchestra of the Royal Opera House
Martin Yates, Conductor
‘Sarah Lamb’s Manon and Vadim Muntagirov’s Des Grieux are perfectly cast and youthful enough to display Macmillan’s athletic and challenging choreography to best effect. Some of the moves are astonishing, and the expression and suppleness of their bodies more than matches the dance requirements. The Act I pas de deux, danced to Massenet’s 'Elegie’, is simply beautiful.

This exceptional 2018 performance is beautifully recorded in high definition and DTS sound.’

RADAM, A.: Corsaire (Le) [Ballet] (Vienna State Ballet, 2016) (NTSC)

Le Corsaire
Ballet in three acts

Robert Gabdullin • Maria Yakovleva
Wiener Staatsballett
Manuel Legris, Ballet Director
Orchester der Wiener Staatsoper
Valery Ovsianikov, Conductor
‘Having watched this disc three times in relatively quick succession, I think it now takes its place as the best filmed version of Le corsaire that is currently available. …most notably its rationalisation of the storyline, Manuel Legris’s accomplished and visually attractive choreography and the Vienna company’s strength in depth… A good quality Blu-ray presentation, with finely delivered picture and sound, sets the seal on a very worthwhile and enjoyable release.’
