A very charming recording of Leo Delibes lasting masterpiece. The stage at times is crowded distracting from the excellent performance of the dancers. The extreme tissue depletion of the Corps of Ballet is disturbing, it resembles a clinical presentation. On the PLUS side the performance of Lisa Pavane exceeds all expectations. She is at par with Leanne Benjamin of the Royal Ballet at Covent Garden. Greg Horsman pays an engaging role. The timing of the Orchestra is superb it makes you dance on your seat. This is a desirable addition to any DVD Ballet collection.
