Rob Maynard
MusicWeb International, March 2012

none of the principals is a world superstar, all are more than competent in their roles, while, as an ensemble, the whole company is well matched and performs to an undeniably high standard. They may lack the tight, disciplined precision of a Russian troupe but more than make up for that deficiency—if that’s how you see it—with masses of twinkly charm—which is a real plus in The Nutcracker above all.

I enjoyed too the contribution of the orchestra under Kazakh-born Renat Salavatov. …I’m belatedly and genuinely pleased to make Salavatov the Magnificent’s acquaintance on this DVD.

…certainly an interesting supplement for anyone seeking a new slant on a popular old favourite… © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review
