    Talking Ballet on DVD and Blu-Ray

    I was looking for a general discussion/recommendation thread, but I can't see one. Ballet on video is frequently expensive compared to Opera! I think it would be a good idea to have a place to talk about it before we spend lots of money.

    I am a noob, so I hope lots of you will bring your expertise to the thread.

    For starters, I am looking at this one:

    Giselle
    Natalia Osipova, Carlos Acosta

    Anyone have it? What can you tell us about it?

    not recommended. Acosta is unlikely dancer pleasing to watch. Osipova is long past her best form since she left The Bolshoi.

    Thanks to Z's link above and going through the related videos, I am finding a number of good things on youtube.

    Probably for the best, since I have spent a lot of money lately.

    I agree with you on that. I like the music. Do not care for the dancing or whatever that is called.

    I like the music in opera, but I don't care for the singing or whatever that is called.
