The Nutcracker | DVD | (01/10/2001)
from £22.10 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker ballet has had many facelifts over the years. Peter Wright's Royal Ballet production is among the most imaginative, bringing together the narrative and fantasy aspects with relish. The first half of Act 1 is made busy but low-key, moving up a gear with the majestic Christmas tree "Transformation Scene", and ending with a gorgeous "Waltz of the Snowflakes". Act 2 decks out the lengthy sequence of character dances with vivid stage sets, culminating in a moving reconciliation between the magician Drosselmeyer and his nephew. Anthony Dowell brings authority, Ivan Putrov enthusiasm to their respective roles; Alina Cojocaru is sympathetic as Clara, and Miyako Yoshida steals the show as the Sugar-Plum Fairy. The Royal Opera House Orchestra take time to adjust to Evgeny Svetlanov's spacious tempos, but the showpieces have real emotional force. A Nutcracker for today, and a Christmas treat for all ages. On the DVD: The 16:9 anamorphic picture reproduces superbly, though rapid switches of camera angles in the ensemble scenes causes some blurring of focus. The PCM Stereo sound is equally realistic in its reproducing of the orchestra from the pit. Special features include insightful interviews with Dowell and Wright--with trilingual subtitles--a behind-the-scenes look at the "Transformation Scene", and alternative fixed wide shots of both that and the "Snowflakes" scenes. The 28 access points are given in the booklet's detailed synopsis. --Richard Whitehouse
Valery Gergiev - Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker | DVD | (03/12/2007)
from £9.94 | Saving you £10.05 (50.30%) | RRP
A magical new version of a much loved classic. Filmed in The Mariinsky Theatre St.Petersburg where it was first performed in 1892. Following Decca's beautiful Swan Lake comes another outstanding production on DVD from the Mariinsky Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker yet a Nutcracker with a twist. The 'adult' Nutcracker. Worlds away from the traditional and warm versions popular at Christmas this unconventional production reinterpreted by Russian emigre and world-renowned avantgarde artist Mikhail Shemiakin is surreal and at times disturbing making this DVD an unusual but essential part of any ballet lover's collection. Shemiakin also designs the eye-catching costumes and startling staging. Two of the Mariinsky's young stars Leonid Sarafanov and Irina Golub dance the main roles. Despite the startling aspects of this production none of the spectacle and awe-inspiring quality of their dancing is lost. Valery Gergiev conducts a complete and un-cut version of Tchaikovsky's popular and much-loved score.

Agnes Letestu, a feminine and warm Odette, Jose Martinez, a convincing, pale vulnerable Prince Siegfried, and Karl Paguette, doubling as a dutiful Wolfgang and an equally devious Rothbart, are the stars of this deeply passionate, 'dream' version of Swan Lake, Rudolf Nureyev's interpretation of Tchaikovsky's lyrical ballet, far from being a cliched stereotype of this celebrated masterpiece, is an expose of astonishingly powerful and recognisable human emotions. Under the inspired and clear-cut musical direction of Vello Pahn, this production of one of the jewels of the Paris Opera Ballet's repertoire brilliantly displays the meticulous precision, technical prowess and pure, unmanbnered style of the company's unrivalled female corps de ballet, eliciting an ethereal, intense beauty, captured for DVD in High Definition video and superb surround sound.
