Thank you in advance.

since the shorter videography in the back of the back of the book was finalized, a number of other performances have come out, including:
COPPELIA by the Royal Ballet, for instance, w/ Acosta and Benjamin(?)
GISELLE w/ Ferri and Murra
SWAN LAKE w/ a cast of dancers from the Berlin Opera House
as well as w/ the Birmingham Royal Ballet, in D.Bintley production.
readers of this site more familiar w/these versions might chime, but feel free to ask me any questions regarding anything said in my book on this subject.
or just wait for all the free advice likely to pour forth in any case.

I purchased 2 DVD's a few weeks ago in London and they will not work on my DVD player:( Boo Hiss!

(p.s. i have just recovered from gasping, as i realised who 'rg' is. :rolleyes: )
karen: australia and the UK have PAL VHS, while in america you have NTSC VHS. (i.e. BOTH are VHS systems.) these days, newer or 'better' models of VTRs (or VCRs) will often play both types of VHS tapes.
about DVDs: the numbering system was explained to me, but i've forgotten it. i'm sure someone else here will help out...

So, if you don't have a multi-region DVD player make sure you check what region the DVD is issued in before you buy it .
Hope that helps,

There is also a region 7 which has been reserved (not in use yet - ready for space stations maybe ;) ), and region 8 for special international venues (airplanes, cruise ships, etc.).

I looked on the back cover of my DVD's from here and it has alot of intials & other jargon I don't understand. On mine it does list NTSC.
On the UK ones one says Disc format "DVD-9", and the DVD "ALL". I will also try them in my car and computer to see if they work there.:confused:

as for the royal ballet's COPPELIA w/ acosta & benjamin, i think that's only in region2/PAL at the moment. but i could be wrong.

Also, does anyone know any classical ballet dvd which includes good extras? I think I'd be happy to watch anything which includes both the ballet itself and a good "making of" documentary.
