Upcoming DVD/Blu-ray Releases

Recommended Posts

Perhaps the reason my favourite section of the entire ballet is the pas de trois in the first act between Septimus Smith, his wife, and Evans, is because I know who they are and what the choreography is representing, the Blu Ray captures the moment when Edward Watson jumps out of the window very well too, don't think I saw that in the theatre, and how rough the wood used in the giant frames is.

I found the Vanessa Redgrave DVD of Mrs. Dalloway easy to understand and enjoyable, much easier than the book :)

Absolutely Beryl - so why are audiences denied a helpful synopsis?

It doesn't even need to be a synopsis: just a few well-chosen words putting what we're seeing into some sort of context would be a help, especially to those buying the DVD who didn't see a live performance and had no chance to buy a programme, and/or haven't read the works to which references is made, however obliquely.
