  1. The blu ray is listed; it just isn't able to be ordered at this stage. This has happened several times with Royal Ballet/Opus Arte releases over recent years (I always buy the blu ray and so have often had to wait to make the pre-order) and seems more likely to be Amazon's product loading issue than a sign that Opus Arte are going with DVD only. Bizarrely, Amazon already have the Cellist/Dances at a Gathering DVD and blu ray available to pre-order and with what seem to be final packaging images even though the release date is said to be January 2021. I thought that with Elizabeth the issue
  2. Bayadere DVD and Blu Ray are now available for pre-order on Amazon with a February 21 release date. Also able to be pre-ordered for the same release date is Natalia: Force of Nature. Currently only the Blu Ray format is able to be pre-ordered. There is a separate entry for the DVD format, but it has yet to go live for pre-order.
  3. Most seem to come out in both formats. I can't think of any that are blu ray only. The more recent Mariinsky ones come with both DVD and blu ray (my Romeo and Juliet came in that dual format and I gave the DVD to a friend) in the way many Bfi releases do. A smaller number come out in DVD format only - presumably where the footage is older and not amenable to/of high enough quality for the blu ray format (for example, most of the Bejart discs, although the Beethoven 9 came in both formats).
  4. The Cranko is on Amazon UK available for pre-order although hard to find (you need to search "John Cranko blu ray" as the product page doesn't have Romeo and Juliet in the name). Also easier to see here: https://www.mdt.co.uk/prokofiev-john-crankos-romeo-and-james-tuggle-c-major-bluray-1.html
  5. Looks like two more ballet releases are coming up. A new recording of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" on August 31st https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07FS6YQ53/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 A recording of Paris Opera Ballet dancing Alexander Ekman's "Play" on September 14th https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07FSFPF9P/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. Isn't Brexit likely to help non-EEA nationals on this front? It should level the playing field, so EEA nationals are not privileged over people from the rest of the world. FATCA shouldn't be a real problem for anyone who isn't trying to hide money from the taxman.
  7. On March 10th C-Major are releasing a Blu Ray and DVD of Helgi Tomasson's Romeo and Juliet with Maria Kochetkova and Davit Karapetyan dancing the leads. It is available for pre-order on Amazon. Has anyone seen the Tomasson production and have a view on it?
  8. Another upcoming release is what looks like a 90th birthday documentary on Yuri Grigorovich called "The Golden Age: the Life and Art of the Bolshoi's controversial choreographer". No further details - Bel Air Classiques just posted on their Instagram feed that this was "coming soon" on dvd. Might be interesting.
  9. A dvd of a documentary about Millepied's creation of Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward on Paris Opera Ballet (I believe it was the first new ballet he created on them as director of dance) is now available for pre-order on Amazon and it looks like the film may be showing in some cinemas as there have a been a few recent newspaper reviews. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01K297J8O/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE I think a non-subtitled dvd of this is already available in France as it was in the Paris Opera shop (named Releve) when I was there a couple of wee
  10. I am going to give it a go and just pray that she makes better choices of rep than Osipova/Vasiliev/Polunin/Vishneva have done on similar projects in the last few years.
  11. It (Frankenstein) is now on the ROH shop website for pre-order with a January 27 release date. Can't see it on Amazon yet.
  12. The BBC programme Nureyev - Dance to Freedom with Artem Ovcharenko is coming out on DVD on October 31st. Is available for pre-order on Amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nureyev-Dance-Freedom-Based-Nominated/dp/B01H07BR3E/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1477096414&sr=1-1&keywords=Artem+Ovcharenko
  13. They do regularly discount Opus Arte discs. They have already done so with Rhapsody and Two Pigeons - my Blu-Ray arrived this morning and had £5 off, although the price has temporarily returned to full price today; it will undoubtedly come down under £20 from time time (although I don't think I have seen them go much under £16). Especially if you have Prime and don't have to have the disc the day it comes out, I think it is much cheaper to get them from Amazon than through the ROH shop (even if you have a friends discount).
  14. Hopefully wrt The Dream and Symphonic Variations. I can't see them issuing another recording of M&A now when they issued one only three years ago.
  15. That Hans van Manen disc is good (I have it on the previously issued DVD) and includes Solo, which many loved when NDT 2 performed it at Sadler's Wells earlier this year. Deja Vu and Two Pieces for Het are very good as well.
