  1. I completely agree with you, Helene. Your point of view is really deep I also think that Aurora "matures" when she's sleeping, as the Prince.
  2. Yes, I agree with the fact that is a competition, and so the characher of Aurora isn't the same that would be in the ballet, and I think that the dancer would change it if it was in a full production too Now I think this variation in a different way. Thank you for your answer
  3. Hi! In this period, I'm often watching the Aurora Vision variation, and I wonder if there is a specific way to portrait the characher of Aurora in this variation or it's a choice of the version of the ballet, it varies by the different companies etc... For example, in this video of the variation Laura Fernandez smiles and I don't find it appropriate in this part of the ballet, that is quite "sad". What do you think about this?
  4. Hi everyone, Can you help me please? I'd like so much to know from which ballet is the music of this exercise of the Vba. Here is the video: https://youtu.be/wAKfr15ceU0. The minute is 11:35. Thanks so much! 😊😊❀
  5. Yes, I also think that! I've seen it in some productions that I don't remember... Which are?
  6. 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 πŸ˜… Thank you in advance and I hope you will have a beautiful 2019 😊❀
  7. Hi cubanmiamiboy, I understand your opinion NYCB version is the most beloved and I myself love it. I've made this survey for hear other people' s opinion, so thank you all!
  8. 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?
  9. 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?
  10. Ah okay, now I've understand Thanks for the advices on the DVDs 😊
  11. Thanks a lot 😊❀ So, can you advise me a good DVD of The Sleeping Beauty?
  12. 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?
  13. 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
