    Here is a review of an exceptionally good recently released Coppelia: http://www.musicweb-international.co...lia_BAC463.htm

Once again there is a good Royal Ballet video of it with Darcey Bussell and Roberto Bolle.
    Saw my second Coppelia last year at NYCB.

    Speaking of Roberto Bolle, this is from last week's New York Times.

    it is the music that contributes most to a ballet's long history on stage.

    All these are WONDERFUL ballets, choreographically and musically. I'm big Rudolf's admirer. He and Maja are the best of the best in classical ballet. Meine Pina (Bausch) in modern! Long live the ballet and its super stars!

    das Unbeschreibliche, hier ist's getan; das Ewig-Weibliche zieht uns hinan.

    I would definitely recommend Natalia Makarova's version!
