Well I have to make a comment on the Don Quixote DVD with Nureyev and the Australian Ballet.
Somehow in the translation from film to video thing got weird. The image is stretched vertically - to fit in the television aspect ratio I suppose - stretched instead of letterboxing ... the dancers have these really thin skinny legs - and faces - more so than normal.
Another thing is that the whole thing is too fast! IMPOSSIBLY fast.
Those little flippy changey pointy things done up on toes (pardon my lack of terminology) — well, imagine if you will ballet dancers on major speed.
The adagio parts look normal speed, not slow, while the fast parts, well, let us put it this way. I fell off my chair laughing.
But I have to say, Nureyev can do more jumps and leaps than I have ever seen anyone do. Quite amazing. But because of the speed much of the effect is lost.
His dancing is not enough so that I don't want to return the DVD, but still impressive.
So, unless this copy is an anomaly I would say do not waste your money.
