"Coppelia" DVD

1 post in this topic

I recently purchased the DVD of Royal Ballet's "Coppelia". It is a lightweight ballet , especially Act II which is practically all mime. None the less the dancing is lovely, and the performance belongs to Leanne Benjamin in the starring role. I have seen little, if anything, of her and I found her wonderful. Her acting wasn't the highest caliber but her dancing was simply beautiful. Acosta was her partner, and in what little he had to do he did it exceedingly well. Also of note was Prayer; I'm sorry I don't have the dancer's name available. Has anyone else seen this tape/DVD and have comments? I recommend it to all.
