Nice! I assume this is the same as that HD broadcast about 6-9months ago?

Although this is listed on the UK site, I can't find it on the U.S. Amazon, Kultur.com, or Barnes & Noble sites. Let's hope it is released in DVD format and sold here.

Let's hope for the DVD, too! This release, in either BD or DVD form, isn't even on BelAir's English site, so who knows? But BelAir is imported into the US, though usually with a fairly high premium.

EvilNinjaX, I believe this is the same version that's on YouTube, and that's being broadcasted in movie theaters. Does that help?

It's on regular DVD format (not just Blu Ray) on the Amazon UK site but seems to have become 'out of stock' as soon as it appeared.

Those who can understand some French can find it in stock at the Amazon France site.

I pre-ordered this from Amazon and expected it to be delivered this week, yesterday I received a message from amazon saying:

"We regret to inform you that the following items have been delayed as we are still awaiting stock from our suppliers...."

The new delivery date is 17th December.

My dvd is being prepared for despatch at this moment with a delivery estimate of 12 - 13th November. Hope you get yours soon.

The whole, big, gigantic thing is hugely, and I mean HUGELY, entertaining.

The DVD quality is very good; sharp and bright, clear colors. And, given that this was filmed at a live performance, the photography isn't bad: this is a ballet with plenty of activity happening all at once on various parts of the stage -- the camera has the good sense to keep back far enough so you can see most of what's going on -- there haven't been too many times when I felt I was missing half the action.

There's an accompanying, nicely illustrated booklet that details the various scenes and which bits are by Ratmansky and which by Vainonen (spelled Vaynonen in the booklet and Vainonen on the DVD box).

All in all worth every penny -- a real keeper. :clapping: :clapping: :clapping:

Note that this is a region-free DVD. I was able to play it on both my Region 1 and Region 2 players, so Americans shouldn't have a problem with it, although at the moment it looks like you'd have to order it from Amazon UK, since it's not listed on the US site.

On Amazon UK it lists this dvd as PAL which is not viewable on US televisions. Is the copy you received NTSC?

Here's what it says on the back of the DVD box:

Duration: 103 minutes (ballet), 21 mins (bonus)
Sound: 2.0 PCM, 5.1 Dolby Digital |Video: Color 16:9
1 DVD 9 NTSC | Region Code: 0
Booklet enclosed
This is a region free NTSC DVD, designed for playback on
all NTSC and modern PAL compatible systems worldwide.


Maybe Amazon UK PAL because that's what is used in Europe and presumably that's where they expect this to sell. Maybe you could contact BelAir Classiques to confirm, but I had no problem with either Region 1 or Region 2 DVD players.

NOTE: I should point out that mine is standard DVD, not BluRay.

Very interesting...under "Product Details" for the DVD, Amazon.uk says:

Format: Classical, PAL
Region: Region 2 (This DVD may not be viewable outside Europe. Read more about DVD formats.)
Number of discs: 1


http://www.amazon.co...ef=pd_cp_d_h__1

But this wouldn't be the first time Amazon made a mistake in its on-line catalog!

If I understand shipping correctly, "airmail delivery" shipping to North America would cost about 3 pounds ($5-6?) and take 5-7 days. Not bad!

:clapping: :clapping: I recerntly received my copy of the DVD from Amazon UK. The quality of the DVD is excellent, as it is recorded in HD, I did not pay extra for the Blue Ray version, alrthough I have the relevant player, my main TV is HD ready, so this is what I opted for. I was not at all disapointed it is a excellent DVD. The Bolshoi are at their best, Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vas. are really brilliant. In Act 2 they dance "en Character" and the results are very exciting, with a distinctive drum beat running through the music. The audience nearly explodes with applause. It is full of colour, and excitement. Not to mention truly amazing choreography and dancing by the whole company. Certainly a new release worth adding to your collection. What a marvelous atmosphere there will surely be when they take it to Paris next year.

Hi,

I also amire this DVD. But unfortunately the booklet does not list all artists. In particularly, I wanted to know who dances amour. Is it Krysanova? As I could assume since she was a role creator.

Thanks,
Natalia
