Rob Maynard
MusicWeb International, December 2014

The conductor on this occasion is Alexander Ingram and I was very impressed with the care he applied to Tchaikovsky’s score, matching tempi and dynamics closely at all times to the practical requirements of the on-stage action. The Orchester der Wiener Staatsoper plays atmospherically and with great accomplishment throughout.

Michael Beyer directs the video recording with great skill. Cameras have been placed at exactly the right spots to capture the drama and to show the dancers to best effect. This is a beautifully filmed record of an attractive production. As such, even in a crowded marketplace, it deserves a warm welcome. © 2014 MusicWeb International Read complete review
