"Jewels" DVD and PBS Great Performances broadcast

I like the production (sets are the best since the originals in my opinion).
The dancing is incredible though I was surprised to find the corps work not always as clean as I would have expected from what I hear about The Paris Opera. I also for some reason had believed up until now that every dancer would have perfect feet in The Paris Opera.
That being said I think the company is fantastic. The soloists and principals are extraordinary.
I love this ballet very, very much and I'm pleased to be able to have such a good production on DVD to view as often as I wish!

I suppose she could have gotten better in the role, gone into it more deeply. Would appreciate hearing about how POB's Diamonds has continued to evolve. Sets a thousand times more crisp and smart than at NYCB and I still love the 'Emeralds' on this one. But also the 'Rubies' is really satisfying.

What are the sets like at NYCB, or elsewhere?
With the discussion of feet and arches, I am surprised no one mentioned Eleanora's. They really attracted my attention in Emeralds.
