"more video advice?"
 
   Could someone please indulge me and give me some more advice on these videos.

ENB's Swan Song + Royal Danish Ballet's Silence is the end of our Song - does anyone know who from ENB dances?

Bolshoi Ballet's Romeo + Juliet

Shakespeare Dance Trilogy - Kirov

Thanks so much for any help!

   Dancers in Swansong are Koen Onzia, Matz Skoog and Kevin Richmond and I was lucky enough to have seen them perform it several times.

   I've bought Swan Song but haven't actually watched it yet! (got a backlog of ballet vids!). What I remember from the television performance was that it was extremely effective, rather more so on stage (loads of closeups of Onzia's face helped).

Bolshoi R&J: I bought this a while back, and until at least 1/2 way through wondered why I'd bothered wasting money on it, although it does get better by the end. Despite the reference on the back to the original choreography by Lavrovsky, I think it's all Grigorovich, so if you can imagine R&J crossed with Spartacus you'll get some idea. Bessmertnova is totally unconvinving as a 14-year-old, but Mukhamedov is good of course. It's also so dark that I did wonder for at least 2 acts whether there was any scenery at the backdrop at all, or whether it was just a black curtain. If I can bear to sit through it all again I may add some further thoughts to this.
