"Cheap Bolshoi videos"
 
   I was wandering round my local branch of Past Times at the weekend, and discovered that they were selling off Bolshoi videos (I think it was the Live at the Bolshoi series) at 4.99 a go, if anyone's interested. (Never could understand what Bolshoi videos had to do with Past Times normal stock, anyway!)

   They were doing this sale in my local branch early this year. My husband had bought me "Giselle" & "Raymonda" from Past Time before (He was very pleased to find ballet videos for me !) but I didn't like them. So I told him not to buy a video from this series. However, they were recently sold at 4.99 and I couldn't resist to buy Romeo&Juliet (Romeo is danced by Irek.)and I didn't liket it ! And I haven't finished watching the Raymonda video yet.

I was SO disappointed with Raymonda too. I've thought about buying Giselle but you've saved me the trouble now!

   I don't think I'll watch my collection of this Bolshoi videos ever again. Especially R&J, you don't feel anything by watching it. These performances took place in 1989. Was it the worst time for the Bolshoi as the communism was about to collapse ? Maybe because I'm not familiar with the Bolshoi style although my first ballet was the Bolshoi's Swan Lake in the 70s and I also enjoyed their Don Q in London a couple years ago.
