You're right EricHG31 that was just about the tv broadcast. Still I'm writing to these people and complain about it. I'm an Italian taxpayer and I pay Rai a lot of money every year so I expect to be able to see what I pay for. Since this channel doesn't reach the whole country yet they should at leat have showed it in streaming.
Luckily today there's the Bolshoi Gala....

I didn't want to spell it out and get myself (or BalletAlert) into legal hot water...but that's the 'gist' of how some folks establish a www.justin.tv broadcast link, to help folks get around a "geoblock" situation. (wink)

AND now you can see the 'special effect surprises' with the White Lady, especially her 'levitation' from behind the wall during the combat...holding the little mirror to shine the light in Abderakhman's eyes, so that Jean can deal the final blow.
BRAVO, PETIPA, VIKHAREV, GERSHENZON...and LA SCALA!!!!

Ha, I couldn't have put it better myself! It's too bad that the Mariinsky, which partly for sentimental reasons is still my favorite ballet company, seems to be stubbornly missing out on the potential that these works have brought the Bolshoi, Scala, etc--especially since they pretty much started the trend.
This production is *stupendous*, surely the ballet event of the year. I hate to complain, but I can't wait to be able to see a better quality version than what's on YT, but even so, I've watched it all the way through twice, and certain sections countless times now. It honestly is a dream come true to be able to see the original (more or less) intention of this ballet--and so well danced and performed (and with a pretty decent filming as well, no fancy "arty" camera angles or shots).
It's always interesting how often when one returns to the source, you realize that what people for years have said makes no sense, only to find that it *does* all work. (This makes me think that the K Sergeyev Petersburg production getting rid of the White Lady was a huge mistake, particularly when her theme is so clearly stated in Glazunov's music). A beautiful testament to all involved, in 1898 and now--and thrilling to see (I admit I even teared up a bit, something I rarely do in Raymonda even though I've always loved the ballet and score).
