- Illustrated Synopsis / Cast Gallery

"The hi-def and detailed images are just perfect although much of the ballet is shown in very long shots from an above angle, as though from the balcony circle of the theater. Nureyev has adjusted the already-impressive lines of swans in the older version into spectacular geometric shapes. There seem to be more swans than any production of the ballet I had previously seen. With the shots from above one gets a sort of very classy Busby Berkeley-type visual presentation of the swans. And from a more distant viewing position their individual movements appear all exactly alike in precise and breathtaking fashion. With the terrific DTS surround this is a truly transporting ballet experience." (Four Stars AudAud.com)
