"This DVD is very heavily cut. The prologue and Act I take 30 minutes. The entire ballet takes about 1:20. This video represents and abridged performance and should be labeled as such. Further, Ms Tennant does not dance well. Strictly for Nureyev fans."
A Very Special Sleeping Beauty!

"This performance is quite interesting. First of all, everybody in this dances fantastically. More to the point, Nureyev does some solos in this that you will not see performed in any other version. The prologue is full of interesting choreography, and as a result some of the fairy solos are cut. The bluebird variation is one of the best around in this performance, performed by none other than Karen Kain and Frank Augustyn. If you are a Nureyev fan(if not, why are you reading this?)and a fan of the Canadian Ballet you will not be disappointed with this dvd."
Shame, shame, shame!

"Shame on manufacturer, partly also on Amazon.com!
Remove, eradicate this non-product!!
Poor, very poor sound: MONO, can you believe that???
Poor image quality: one-to-one copying from tape to DVD!!!
And: this isn't the complete 'Sleeping Beauty', as meant by the composer.
I feel cheated!!!!!!
Shame, shame, shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(I only filled in one rating star because this strange system doesn't accept zero's!!!!!!!)"
