"I enjoyed this ballet very much. The dancers were superb, as were the sets (I thought the use of the curtain was quite clever). Irek Mukhamedov in the title role was outstanding. The camera was a bit too distant at times, but not so much it spoiled the viewing. Overall, a very good production."
Not terrible - great!

"A really powerful production. If you don't care for Prokofiev's music in general you might still like this. A powerful story of a powerful ruler and his descent into cruelty and madness, reflected in the music becoming disjointed towards the end. Superb choreography and dancing. Unlike the video tape of the Bolshoi production of this ballet, well photographed."
