Marius Petipa’s exotic ballet, set in legendary India, is a story of love, death and vengeful judgement.

Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.

Delibes: Sylvia

Delibes: Sylvia

Live Recording from The Opéra National De Paris, 2005


Aurélie Dupont, Marie-Agnès Gillot, Manuel Legris, Nicolas Le Riche & José Martinez

Opéra National De Paris, Paul Connelly

Choreography, Stage Direction & Lighting Design by John Neumeier

Set & Costume Design by Yannis Kokkos

The longstanding and enormously successful director of the Hamburg Ballet, John Neumeier, created his famous adaptation of Sylvia at the invitation of the Paris Ballet. Arthaus presents a recording of this choreography from the Opéra de Paris with a line-up of soloist that includes some of the world’s best dancers, indeed stars on the international dance scene.

Sylvia has a long history connected to the Opéra de Paris and has transcended the metamorphoses of dance throughout the twentieth century to be revived again and again right up to John Neumeier’s refreshingly contemporary version. As a choreographer infused as much with the culture of the repertoire as with a spirit of creativity, he seemed preordained to offer a new version of this “classic”. Supported by the cautiously simple but very effective stage and costume design by the Greek painter Yannis Kokkos, emphasising the dancing rather than dominating it, John Neumeier has created a ballet that is as timeless as the mythological fable it portrays and at the same time very close to audiences today.

Mendelssohn: A Midsummer Night's Dream - incidental music, Op. 61

Live Recording from From The Teatro Alla Scala, 2007


Alessandra Ferri, Roberto Bolle & Massimo Murru

Teatro Alla Scala, Nir Kabaretti

Choreography by George Balanchine

Restaged by Patricia Neary, Sara Leland

Set & Costume Design by Luisa Spinatelli

The DVD shows a recording of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the famous Balanchine choreography, which made the ballet such a popular staple with companies all over the world.

Danced by three star-dancers in the main roles and a company that ranks among the best in the world, it guarantees first class entertainment.

George Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the summery counterpart to his Christmassy Nutcracker: Its youthful charm and light esprit, the ease of transition between the realm of Oberon’s fairy kingdom, the aristocratic world of the Athenian court, the tit-for-tat of the bourgeois lovers and the artisans’ provincial theatre and the “free spirit” Puck, makes it a ballet for the whole family and a joy to watch.

The whole production with its fantastic costumes, the fairy-tale scenery and the wonderful dancing is like an unearthly dream in itself.

Natalia Osipova (Jeanne), Denis Savin (Jerome), Ivan Vasiliev (Philippe, un Marseillais), Yuri Klevtsov (Marquis Costa de Beauregard), Nina Kaptsova (Adeline), Anna Antonicheva (Mireille de Poitiers) & Ruslan Skvortsov (Antoine Mistral)

Bolshoi Ballet & Orchestra of the Bolshoi Theatre, Pavel Sorokin

Choreography: Alexei Ratmansky

Original Choreography by Vasily Vaynonen

Design: Ilya Utkin & Evgeny Monakhov

Costumes: Yelena Markovskaya

Lighting: Damir Ismagilov

Under the aegis of its now acting artistic director, Alexei Ratmansky, the Bolshoi Theatre Ballet Company, continues its foray into the history of Russian ballet with a revival of The Flames of Paris. Les Flammes de Paris is a two act classical ballet by Boris Asafiev based on songs of the French Revolution, originally choreographed by Vasily Vainonen for the Kirov in 1932 and reconstructed in 2008 by Alexei Ratmansky for the Bolshoi Ballet.

Vasiliev, they say, can almost fly: the Bolshoi’s principal superstar, he’s also been filmed for the Andrew Marr show and is all over youtube. Recent Covent Garden appearances in Don Quichote & Spartacus generated rave reviews. This is his first DVD. The Bolshoi will be performing this ballet in London next August.

“And then there’s Vasiliev and Osipova. A gasping squeal went round the theatre at his first big leap. The jump is high, his legs and feet taut - but it’s his nonchalance that makes it amazing. There’s a lot more where that came from.” The Independent

Roland Petit: Le Jeune Homme Et La Mort & Carmen

Roland Petit: Le Jeune Homme Et La Mort & Carmen

Live Recording from The Opéra National De Paris, 200


Bach, J S:

Le jeune homme et la mort

Bizet:

Carmen


Marie-Agnès Gillot, Nicolas Le Riche & Clairemarie Osta

Ballet de L’Opéra National de Paris & Orchestre Colonne, Paul Connelly

The DVD shows two masterpieces of French post-war ballet and a homage to Roland Petit, its most influential representative.

Including the ballets Le jeune homme et la mort and Carmen in a production with the Orchestre Colonne directed by Paul Conelly. Premiered in June 1946 Le jeune homme et la mort marked the start of a whole new generation of choreography in liberated Paris, becoming the trademark of existentialist ballet. Petit choreographed his Carmen ballet, which is loosely based on Prosper Mérimée‘s story, to a musical potpourri from Bizet‘s opera. In this recording filmed at the Opéra National de Paris, the star soloists of the Opéra ballet company take on the challenge: Nicolas Le Riche, Marie-Agnès Gillot and Clairemarie Osta. Filmed with great visual and musical mastery, both works are documents of Petit’s enormous infl uence on post-war ballet and this DVD can be regarded as a homage to the grand seigneur of French dance.

Splendid dancing by The Royal Ballet and Cossack dancers completes the spectacle. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.

Dominic Grier

Elite Syncopations

Music: Scott Joplin & other Ragtime composers

Sarah Lamb, Valeri Hristov & Steven McRae

Robert Clark

The Judas Tree

Music: Brian Elias

Carlos Acosta, Leanne Benjamin & Edward Watson

Barry Wordsworth


MacMillan’s vision has been vital in shaping The Royal Ballet’s style and repertory, and what better way to appreciate his art than with this rare chance to experience three contrasting works in a single performance. Abstract, dramatic, humorous – this programme gives a wonderfully varied introduction not just to MacMillan’s work but to the beauty and dramatic power of ballet itself. Concerto, to Shostakovich’s Second Piano Concerto, contrasts moments of exuberance and elegiac reflection. The Judas Tree places a single woman among 13 men to enact a harrowing event that is recognizably contemporary but with biblical overtones. Elite Syncopations completes the programme with a sparkling evocation of a dance hall that brings ragtime rhythms to the dance, and a ragtime band to the stage.

“There has never been a choreographer that I can think of who could produce three such contrasting works, and you sit watching in wonderment at the fertile imaginings of his mind. " Telegraph
