    Ferri and Corella shine but the rest is lackluster

    I'm no ballet expert but I love the Prokofiev score and for me, the definitive choreography is Kenneth McMillan's. This La Scala production features the radiant Alessandra Ferri and Angel Corella, a passionate, exuberant Romeo. There are a few moments of uncertainty on Corella's part but he quickly recovers and his delight in love and in dancing are reflected in his movements and expression (although the smiles are so frequent, one would almost think they were permanently attached.)He's undoubtedly one of the handsomest Romeos dancing today--and one of the most technically arresting dancers. Ferri is exquisite; at once an adorably coltish adolescent and elegantly heartbreaking. So what's wrong with this picture? Simply put, the supporting cast and La Scala's corps don't match the leads. The large ensembles are fuzzy and lack sharpness and characterization. Paris, Mercutio and Benvolia are bland; only Tybalt has an air of menace about him. Much of the mime comes off as tepid gestures and posturing. The Brits (and ABT) are the champs with this ballet and the 1984 VHS with Ferri and Wayne Eagling is a thoroughly satisfying production in every respect. Although Corella is drop dead gorgeous,young and brash, Eagling's internalized Romeo has more depth. Ferri is simply remarkable--in the sixteen years since this Covent Garden production, she has lost none of her suppleness, strength or expression. Her elasticity in the tomb scene is breathtaking. The camera work in this dvd is less interesting than in the vhs. Some of the large ensemble scenes look as though the camera was in the ceiling; you have to squint to make out what's going on. Sound quality is good.
