"If you are a fan of Fernando, this DVD is interesting for its historical value, as very little of his recorded dancing is available commercially. This particular piece has numerous flaws, choreographic, dramatic, and technical. The latter are the most irksome for the casual viewer. The color is a washed-out sepia in the first act, and the second act is danced in near-pitch darkness. The sound is muffled, and the orchestra is sub-par. Bujones is enjoyable to watch, but male dancing has progressed so much in just the last two decades, one would almost think he is a talented but unpolished amateur at a graduation performance."
