Product Notes

Bringing together four seminal works, this attractive collection offers a perfect introduction to the world's oldest national ballet company. Jewels, an alluring, abstract ballet, a triptych in which each piece sparkles with the brilliance of a precious stone, is a lyric tribute to women and to the cities of the great dance schools. La Dame Aux Camelias, based on the novel that also inspired the stories of Verdi's La Traviata and Hollywood's Moulin Rouge, is a riveting dance drama which unfolds ingeniously through love, passion and danger. Rudolf Nureyev's colourful, "movie-star" production of Cinderella retains the classic Perrault story but sets it in America during the difficult years of the Great Depression. Agnes Letestu, a feminine and warm Odette, and Jose Martinez, a convincing, pale, vulnerable prince Siegfried, are the stars of this deeply passionate, 'dream' version of Swan Lake. Rudolf Nureyev's interpretation of Tchaikovsky's lyrical ballet, far from being a cliched stereotype of this celebrated masterpiece, is an expose of astonishingly powerful and recognizable human emotions.
