    Beautiful ballet but Low graphic/sound quality

    The dance is absolutely beautiful and superb but the DVD graphic/sound quality is very low because it's recorded long time ago. It has even glitches, that makes me hard to be absolved in the play.

    OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE

    The performers were flawless in the execution of their art. The costumes and lighting was very colorful and appropriate for each character in the act. The music was outstanding as was the dancing. It was enjoyable to watch without the usual narration provided by domestic versions, which seem to be produced for those who are unfamiliar with the story or small children.
