    Khachaturian is the best specially for Gayane.
    Delibes for Sylvia and Copplia.
    Tchaikovsky's ballets are also very good, but I've heard them too many times.

    I have the same opinion. I'd like to buy a Rienzi's dvd production and watch that ballet and the gladiators... but such dvd doesn't exist The Berlin production of Rienzi is too short and ridiculous.

    I'd like too the ballet from Les Troyens, spectacular!
    The ballet from L'Africaine is very nice too, and the Aida's ballet.

    More ballets: Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Copelia, Sylvia....

    Satie ~ "Parade" is right up there, too!

    I'm not into ballets per se, but if Parade were staged, that's one I'd actually show up for.

    I know the Joffrey Ballet restaged it in the '70s or '80s. Has that ever ended up on video?
