Magnificent dancing
Tony Heyes | Greater Manchester UK | 06/26/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nureyev's "Don Quichotte" produced for the Paris Opera Ballet is a miracle of dancing and story-telling. Nureyev, we are told, was addicted to old Hollywood musicals and in this ballet it shows. The routines of the corps de ballet are amazing in their complexity and fluidity, clearly owing much to Busby Berkeley.The corps are as much stars of the show as are the etoiles, but the etoiles are magnificent. Jean-Guillaume Bart as Espada the toreador has a swaggering insolence and precision of line equalled only by Marie-Agnes Gillot, the "street dancer" who partners him.However, it is the dancing of Manuel Legris and Aurelie Dupont, Basile and Kitri, that is a wonder to behold. They are perfectly matched and move in total harmony throughout. Legris who, we are told by one critic, "is in the autumn of his career" dances his socks off with a brio and perfection seldom seen anywhere. The total production is so funny it makes one laugh, and the dancing so close to the Platonic Ideal that it makes one want to cry at its beauty. Few productions ever lift the spirits as this one does. We should thank God for the Paris Opera Ballet and its dancers, and for Nureyev who lives on in this production. Buy it now. Buy it for your friends!"
Perfection is not an imperfection

"At the time I submitted this review the average rating was only four stars. Believe the rave reviews and discount those who would give a lower rating because the performance is "too perfect"!"
Another moment of bliss

"The image and sound quality of this DVD is truly superb. sound. This is another masterful production of the Opera de Paris. Costumes and decor are beautiful. Aurélie Dupont is radiant, dances marvelously and is ever so elegant. Manuel Legris and Jean Guillaume Bart both give a great performance. This is a DVD to own or to offer."
Best Don Quixote Ballet in DVD
Patrick G. MacKay | Houston, TX | 04/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Aurelie Dupont (Kitri) is the best active Prima Ballerina in the world. This DVD is just perfect (video, sound, and camera work). Manuel Legris (Basile) is the perfect dancing partner of Aurelie Dupont. Marie Agnes Gillot is excellent as the street dancer and Jean Guillaume Bart as Espada is great!!! I was so impressed with this ballet performance that three months after I watched this video I traveled to Paris to see the Don Quixote ballet, the best experience of my life!!!"
