  1. It looked like she was being called from the side, she was turning her head to listen to someone.From what she said, I assumed it was her dresser or someone of importance getting her ready for the next act. She was on first in the next act.

    Just found the response from ENB, Adam Lawford. He refers to the very high, up front investment for releasing DVD and Blu-ray. I suppose they have Market research capability and so have considered the potential returns as a risk. Even in this forum, some members have said they were interested in purchasing the Bernstein Centenary and some are not. I was wondering if anyone knows the size of this forum membership, if not the number of members who would invest in Akram Khan's Giselle on DVD.

    Who knows, just quoting the reply when I asked them the question. It can be said that there have been many live streaming in cinema which didn't result in a DVD release. Could public response influence the outcome ?

    I haven't seen this ballet, just the Opera, so look forward to giving it a try. I did try the ballet based on the same story, Tatiana, but it does not have the Tchaikovsky music, so I didn't rate it very highly.

    I bet the sandwich and drink was wonderful as well.😅 Bad news from ENB is they say there is no intention to release the DVD.😢

    If it was 7/11, it was Aki Saito. The other dates were by Nancy Osbaldeson and Juliet Burnett. Programme :- https://www.operaballet.be/giselle Theres no such thing as failure if you were just delayed.

    Akram Khans Willis, the most creepy creatures you would wish not to meet. Certainly not an encounter for a lone male on a dark night. Nothing fluffy about these ladies, they mean business.

    Lets remember the big success for the 'Woolf Pack', showing how working in teams can achieve results, ending in resounding 'howls' of delight when John the 'Woolf' watcher spotted its arrival.

    I think you will find them a big improvement on the old VHS. I once attended a lecture called 'The Future of Adventure', which made me think. It depended on the individual, whilst one persons adventure could be climbing Everest, another was a walk on the fells, they both gave the same satisfaction to that person. Its all about what you are happy with and enjoy, but also about having choices. If you can buy your DVD's in PAL format, they are better resolution than NTSC, although many classical are only issued in NTSC.(American Format). You enjoy your DVD's, I still enjoy mine as do millions of others, despite now buying blu-ray and thinking about possible future move to UHD.😄

    Mine two, its not that we cant afford them, but it is moving so fast that the prices are sure to drop and right now we could pay a fortune for something that has become obsolescent by the time the prices have fallen. Let them iron out all the teething problems first. At the moment quite happy with performance of my Yamaha. Not a lot of features, but an excellent build. Including isolation of incoming vibrations from other electronics. I have only ever seen it as a showroom display. They were showing 'Red Sparrow' and it was a stunning presentation. Its an example of where home entertainment is moving and

    I have only ever seen it in a showroom demo. It was 'Red Sparrow' they were showing, not a full ballet. I learned that it may be 10 years before 4k would be televised, but told that an influx of 4k video was coming. I had a whispered message to hold back, because the prices would certainly come down. I trust that your UHD video can still play DVD and Blu-ray. It appears that availability will come with mass marketing and reduced purchase prices. That appears to be just around the corner. One Forum says that most TV sets in Sweden are already 4k and no more expensive. We can only watch and wait. https://www.quora.com/How-long-do-you-think-we-have-left-until-4k-becomes-the-nor

    Nothing new added to the debate and I have nothing new to add.There will always be differing opinion to which all are entitled. People will make their own decisions on what suits them best. We can only hope that debate helps in that decision making process.

    Many TV,s are now being produced without SCART connections. This is because SCART will not carry sufficient DATA for UHD resolution. Just check that your TV also has HDMI connection. You will certainly need that if you want to take advantage of high definition Blu-ray /UHD. Some models are still on sale with SCART and HDMI for the interim period. I have an old Panasonic which has both. If there is no SCART on your TV, or HDMI, you can buy and adaptor, but it will not allow you to view UHD. Good luck.
