 A magnificent performance  April 23, 2013 By D. Carruthers (Schaumburg, IL) See All My Reviews "This is the visual realization of the excellent performance by all the dancers in this production. It is a treat to see." Report Abuse
 Don Quixote as a movie! without losing the ballet March 3, 2013 By Philemon W J. (Annandale, VA) See All My Reviews "Nureyev still is a dance role model. It takes a bit of time to get use to a camera being on the `stage' with the dancers, but it does work, and to the producer's credit the camera tends to pull back properly during most dances. The restoration process revived the colour of the costumes, set and skin tone and makes the viewing very enjoyable." Report Abuse
