    Why Aurora...?

    Yes, I also think that! I've seen it in some productions that I don't remember... Which are?

    Why Aurora...?

    Can you explain me why in the Sleeping Beauty, in the first act, when Aurora pretenders offer to her their roses for the second time she throws them away? I always asked myself 😅 Thank you in advance and I hope you will have a beautiful 2019 😊❤

    Thank you all! :)) I also like NYCB version, but I've discovered the Mariinsky version and I love it! What do you think about this?
  6. Hi! Now it's The Nutcracker season, and I wanted to do a survey. Which is the best version of The Nutcracker in your opinion and why?
  7. Ah okay, now I've understand Thanks for the advices on the DVDs 😊
  8. Thanks a lot 😊❤ So, can you advise me a good DVD of The Sleeping Beauty?
  9. Okay thanks 😊 Can I ask you why many on this forum have a distaste for her technique? I often read that her dancing is fantastic on technique but lacks on the interpretation... I personnally like her, she was the first Odette that I saw and there was something in her that I liked immediately... same for her Giselle. I'm the only there?
  10. I buy them on Amazon or Ebay
  11. Thanks to everyone for your answers! They were very helpful for me Now I have new questions: First; I have seen on Youtube some videos of Aurelie Dupont in the Sleeping Beauty and I liked much. In your opinion, is it worth to buy the DVD? What do you think of her interpretation of Aurora? Second; do you think is it worth to buy the DVDs box set The Art of Svetlana Zakharova at the Bolshoi? There are 4 DVDs of her performances in Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty, La Bayadère and The Pharaoh's Daughter. Thanks again
  12. I like more romantic and lyrical ballets, as Giselle and Swan Lake, but I'm open to other suggestions to discover new ballets As example, now I'm intrigued by La Sylphide 😉
  13. Hello, I would like to know some DVD titles of repertoire ballets, since I started collecting them. What are the "essentials" to have? For now I own Swan Lake, Giselle, La Bayadère all danced by Svetlana Zakharova and Roberto Bolle, Giselle with Marianela Nuñez and Vadim Muntagirov and Raymonda with Olesya Novikova and Friedmann Vogel. Which others do you recommend? Thank you so much ❤️
  14. Thank you Aurora! In your opinion, which is the best ballet between Giselle and The Sleeping Beauty with Svetlana Zakharova and for the ballet in itself?
