I have the Royal Ballet's Coppelia on DVD. It is from a live performance in Feb. of 2000, with Leanne Benjamin and Carlos Acosta. I think it is lovely!

I also have ABT's Giselle with Eric Bruhn and Carla Fracci. The beautiful and elegant Toni Lander is Myrtha. However, this DVD was made from a film, not from a live performance, and it is frustrating as they use all sorts of film techniques to "enhance" the story, thereby totally messing it up and missing some of the dancing. I bought it because of Eric and Toni, and I'm glad I have it, but I was quite upset with it in terms of how it is produced.

Hi!

Both of ABT's recent televised performances are not available on DVD-"Le Corsaire" and "Variety & Virtuosity".

A great way to check out dance DVDs is to go to www.amazon.com and do a search under DVD for ballet. I know there are some Nureyev ballets on DVD.

Hi!

The Acosta& Benjamin Coppelia DVD is from a performance in 2000 and was released (at least in Region 1 form) in November of 2001. (Unless they taped another version with the same dancers).
