"The Act II Dances are stunning, with Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev mixing breathtaking athleticism with sparkling joie-de-vivre, captured in stunning pictures and sound." BBC Music Magazine, February 2011 **** [The Flames of Paris]

"Unashamedly traditional, gloriously staged, with a tremendous cast … pin-sharp clarity and fine sound … essential viewing. It is no exaggeration to say that even without Tchaikovsky's music, the sumptuousness and elegance of the screen images are such that one could enjoy it as a purely visual experience. Add to that one of the most radiantly inspired orchestral scores of the nineteenth century and the results are quite simply irresistible" International Record Review, March 2013 [Sleeping Beauty]

"Integrity in dancing, and fine playing from the Bolshoi's orchestra under Pavel Klinichev." Financial Times, 17th December 2011 [Nutcracker]
