Rockin' Bizet
David Thierry | Chicago, IL United States | 02/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Here we have some terribly inventive and vital choreography from Down Under and ain't it grand. This is one of those efforts that is totally entertaining, never a dull moment, ladies gorgeously and uniquely costumed in each episode, a fine collection of brawny men, choreography that keeps you awake and watching,diverse, sensitive to the music, inspired, original, contemporary but always with classic ballet as it's foundation. You won't regret this one. It's a rousing night out. If only the Joffrey Ballet in Chicago would stop doing that damn boring Green Table and put this on instead. Try it."
Vitality, Brio, Style.

"This ballet reveals the Australian Ballet to be an sizzeling(?) tour de force. The choreography is fast and furious with subtle interludes and complex steps. There are almost too many fireworks but the music and the dancing sustains a unified and sensuous set of dances. I love it. I saw it live, with Suite en Blanc in a double by the Aust Ballet called Paris Match, and it was a wonderful pairing.
This DVD does the Ballet justice. The costumes are inventive and fun and the sleek corps de ballet and other principals and stars all dance with a sort of sexy knowingness which is cheeky and merry. Sad that Stanton Welsh belongs now to Houston ballet."
