PARIS NATIONAL OPERA BALLET - Orfeo ed Euridice / Rain / Tribute to Jerome Robbins (2008-2014) (3-DVD Box Set) (NTSC) BAC613
PARIS NATIONAL OPERA BALLET - Orfeo ed Euridice / Rain / Tribute to Jerome Robbins (2008-2014) (3 Blu-ray Disc Box Set, Full-HD) BAC614

The clear highlight of this collection is Pina Bausch’s 2008 revival of her 1975 masterpiece Orpheus and Eurydice scored to Gluck’s full opera, masterfully led by Thomas Hengelbrock conducting the Balthasar-Neumann Ensemble and Choir. Veteran dance filmmaker Vincent Bataillon illuminates Bausch’s stunning sense of stage composition as well as the dynamic power and subtleties of the lead dancers and singers on stage together. © 2017 ConcertoNet.com Read complete review
