(Rating: Excellent. Beautiful. Great overall (even with that unfortunate split screen with piano hands.))

This DVD of Raymonda hails to be a revival of Petipa's 1898 choreography, done by Sergei Vikharev. Allegedly, the costumes and sets have also been recreated. With several additional mime scenes, the plot of Raymonda is now easier to follow, though it is still the same, thin plot as in other productions. The costumes and sets are all brightly colored and dazzling to the eye. Choreographically, I think this ballet is dated, and the dozens of character and corps de ballet dances tend to bore the viewer. As for the dancers, Olesia Novikova is absolutely stunning, the ideal of a Russian ballet dancer. Friedemann Vogel and Mick Zeni have very little to do, but they do their roles admirably. The corps de ballet tends to be slightly sloppy at times, and it is evident that some of the dancers have no idea what character dance is; they stick out in the dances of the final scene. Of course, the music isn't dated at all, still that near-perfect ballet score, despite being a little long for today's tastes. For the most part, the video recording was good, besides some irritable moments during Raymonda's variation in the last scene, and those of various close-ups in other parts of the ballet. In my opinion, this ballet has proved to be very typical of La Scala - the stars are extremely better than the rest of the dancers (particularly Novikova), and the demi-soloists are completely lacking, while the corps de ballet has an inclination on sloppiness. I'd recommend this DVD to fans of Raymonda and Novikova, and those who have a genuine interest in the 'original' choreography. For a more exciting version, I'd point to Bolshoi's Raymonda, with Lyudmilla Semenyaka.
