"Coppelia DVD ..."
   I've just got hold of the recently released Royal Ballet production of Coppelia ( sorry no accents above the e ) , it is fantastic . i was a bit sceptical about DVD's as i am that used to videos , but the image is much sharper and more precise...you would almost think you are in the ROH watching it .not to mention Sir Anthony does a little intro at the beginning.
I just hope that they release the christmas version of the Nutcracker on DVD, can't wait!!!

   The crystal clear DVD picture does wonders to ballet! But you might want to get the Australian Ballet version. It is a better production and Lisa Pavanne is a more exciting Swanilda the Leanne Benjemin - and dare I say it, stronger technically! Overall it is a more boisterous and exciting Coppelia which makes the RB version look rather genteel in comparison.

Also the smaller stage in the Australian theatre is more suited to TV cameras then the bigger stage in London.
