Valery Gergiev recorded the complete Sleeping Beauty fairly recently with the Kirov....it is available on CD. (I found mine used at Academy Books and Records in NYC and snatched it up....)

For Swan Lake, the video with Mezentseva and Zaklinsky has the proper music. I believe--you could take it from that for rehearsal at least.....

I think there might be a complete Bayadere through a site with Christopher in the name somewhere--it was mentioned here on the board recently (they also have the Don Q music) I rec'd a catalogue from them and they seem to have a nice assortment of ballet music--Victoria Leigh, are you there? (She knows to what I refer....)

All of the ballets available through the site Christopher Seminars are copies of other recordings...for example; his recording of Bayadere is a copy of the version by Sofia National Orch. conducted by Spassov

Thanks -- there have been suspicions about this site. I don't want links to a bootleg site here -- even though I know they are kindly meant :) So I'll ask people not to link to any site that violates copyright laws, and will delete future references without notification.

Thank you! I had no idea--

In any case, out of print CDs are occasionally available through the internet or in shops......we can keep a weather eye out for you, Solor and let you know if anything turns up.
