MusicWeb International, June 2018

Copeland and Bolle are very well supported by the full La Scala company, which is kept busy in cleverly and expertly managed crowd scenes. While an array of colourful costumes and attractive sets are a delight to the eye on the stage, in the pit the La Scala orchestra under the idiomatic direction of Patrick Fournillier supports the action most effectively. © 2018 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Audiophile Audition, February 2018

The dance scene of the principals’ first meeting, featuring the confident Roberto Bolle and the bewitching Misty Copeland, is terrific.

…there is nothing like seeing a sword fight in a real ballet. This performance has three. The first one between the Montagues and Capulets is not just dazzlingly well done, it whips right through you like a rapier. Of course it’s superbly staged, but you can never tell the artifice from the art because it’s all done so seamlessly. © 2018 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
