Thanks a lot

On my personal scale, between 1 and 10, 1 being stuff I regret getting (the Grigorivich Nutcrackera nd 10 being stuff I thank my lucky stars was released (the RB Bayadere, the R&J film with Nureyev and Fonteyn) I'd put this release at a 7.5. Ferri's Titania is a treat to watch as usual, but Stiefel's one of those dancers I've never been able to "get." I like Balanchine's working of Midsummer's Night Dream more than Ashton, but Ashton's Dream is shorter, and perhaps more romantic.
One of the great things about this ballet is Herman Cornejo as Puck :)
