In response to the query of Swan Lake on DVD here are my thoughts.

The Baremboin Swan Lkae is just that. His reading of the magical score is the primary reason for acquiring this. The Berlin orchestra makes a gorgous sound.

I think that the best source for searching for available DVDs/VHS of ballets is not Amazon but DVDTalk/ Pricegrabberat http://dvdtalk.pricegrabber.com. As an example I did a search on Swan lake.

One is the children's cartioon film but here are the results. You have to do a bit of detective work as the information can be "sketchy" but there are cover illustrations. The Markarova and Fonteyne/Nureyev Swan Lake are available on DVD.

what a find.
have you ordered from this place?
if so, and if you found service satisfactory, it would seem this is a prime site to surf and perhaps shop.
thanks for the tip.

Dear RG,

I have ordered BUT this is a clearing house also, such as on Amazon New/Used.

No problems I got the Sondheim musicals.

The merchandise they offer is new, right? As opposed to used.

But just a reminder, start with Amazon, then if they don't have what you're looking for, refine the search using this source. Ballet Alert gets some help from Amazon for anything ordered from this page. I've made it a practice always to use Amazon from here when ordering a book on any subject.

Is Amazon available in Australia. I mean can I order through Amazon in Australia. Does anyone have the Australian contact details? I'd be very grateful.

Ozzie, if you click on the Amazon link at the top of the board, and then scroll all the way to the bottom, there are links to the Amazon sites overseas. I believe there is one in Australia. I don't know their policies for shipping, but the U.S. site has very clear instructions/info/details. Good luck.

(p.s. if there's not a link there, try www.google.com. Do a search for Amazon + Australia )
