We had no problems with neither ratio nor transmission, it only had tiny tiny stops which the eye hardly registered. It is a great idea to transmit these sessions, only should they advertise them better. I hope they will do more of this kind in future.
I think as a programme it had too much talking in it, especially in the beginning where the retelling of the story would take no end (and I wonder if a Danish audience actually understands English to that extent). But I shall not complain: they were extremely generous with the dance excertps! I was especially surprised they had called in all the men for the big scene in act two where Manon is handed round like a delicious "dish".
You are right about Lendorf. He has the right adagio qualities for Des Grieux and also the right temperament, I think. I'm rather curious to see, if Alexandra Lo Sardo will be able to create a three dimensional character out of Manon. She is not one of my favorite dancers. Though technically a really able and refined dancer, she still has to prove to me that she can express anything deeper than sweetness or temper. Her dance has until now come over to me as very unpersonal, as if she is not really there. What we saw yesterday was, however, quite promissing in that respect.
