"I don't know what they did to the video. The effective resolution is no better than 160x100. The dancing is on par with other POB performances but the video transfer failed to show that.
The video is watchable on my computer in a small window. Watching it on a modern HDTV would make you wonder if your TV is broken! The dancers are great but you can't see them clearly to fully enjoy the program.
I guess the advance of the modern TV has made the older videos like this one unwatchable. Very sad.
Performance : 4
Video Quality: 1
I rented this DVD from Netflix. I would not want to own it. Owning this Blu-ray disc, Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake [Blu-ray], forever changed my expectation on what a good video can be. Sadly, this disc is far from it."

"I have many ballet performances in my collection. Mostly Russian ballet. Quality of this film is poor .I expected more colors -better stage design. Why dancers perform classical pieces in modern or may rehearsal type of costumes? I couldn't even finish watching it. Cover photo on DVD box is too promising."
