Superb moderrn ballet but might not suit all tastes

"In my book this ballet is an outstanding success although the premiere December 2008 met a mixed response (The critique is on the net [...]) IMO this is modern ballet at its best and is danced to very appealing arrangements of Montererdi's centuries old music. I consider it to be far better than AMELIA. The artistry, athleticism and interpretation of the dancers is impressive. They express a series of emotions with extremely effective lighting. There is no story as such, just dance interpreting the music supposedly giving a portrait of the painter, but it might not appeal to everyone.
The video is first rate but the audio had me perplexed as ARTHAUS production omitted the usual audio selection in the introductory menu. The audio can be toggled between PCM stereo and DTS-HD via the player remote but that should not be necessary.
I thoroughly enjoyed the brilliant artistry and like it more and more at each viewing but that is a very personal opinion so it is recommended with a caution as it might not be your cup of tea."
