  1. I keep a close eye on DVD/Blu ray releases and I keep meaning to share them here. Amazon UK (other sites are available) have a number of upcoming DVD/Blu-ray releases available for pre-order: The Merry Widow, National Ballet of Canada, Karen Kain/John Meehan/Raymond Smith/Yoko Ichino. This was previously available on VHS but think it's the first time it's been released on disc. DVD Blu-ray Caravaggio Special Edition, Staatsballet Berlin, Vladimir Malakhov/Polina Semionova. Looks like a re-issue of the 2009 release, with the addition of an audio CD. DVD Blu-ray Napoli, Royal
  2. I thought I might as well make a general thread for these occasional emails from Dance Books, so here's the latest one: "We are happy to announce a reprint of Cyril Beaumont's 'The Diaghilev Ballet in London', a vivid recollection of performances seen and friendships forged with company members. And a recent warehouse tidy has revealed a stock of new copies of Maurice Leonard's hardback biography of Alicia Markova, listed at £20 whch we're happy to order for just £4.99. You'll find full details and ordering facilities on our web site, www.dancebooks.co.uk Finally, we're auction
  3. I suspect the answer to this is going to be "no", but my daughter is reading Pushkin's "Eugene Onegin" and hasn't yet been able to see a performance of Cranko's ballet. She was away when RB last performed it in 2015 (?) and too young for it prior to that. I know the Tchaikovsky opera is widely available on DVD but apart from excerpts of and interviews about the ballet on Youtube, there doesn't seem to be a recording of the full ballet available anywhere. Nor does the RB or any other company seem likely to stage the ballet in the UK this year or next. Am I remembering corr
  4. Sort of related to the probable impact of coronavirus (but I don't want to add this to the existing thread) on class availability. What book and DVD recommendations do we have to encourage practice at home?
  5. Thought we might as well use the Poll feature for a change! I'm thinking probably the Rojo/Streeter/Corrales/Quagebeur cast, but open to alternatives. All views welcome, no included, so as to get an accurate idea of potential interest. You can add any comments below.
  6. Really enjoyed watching Dances at a Gathering on World Ballet Day, followed by a brief mention at the Robbins/Balanchine Insight at ROH earlier this week. I have been trying to find a copy on DVD/Bluray and one does exist, it’s just near impossible to get hold of. The Paris Opera Ballet have a version from 2014 with Ratamansky’s Psyche but it doesn’t seem to be available in the UK and the Paris Opera shop won’t ship to the UK! Does anyone have any leads in terms of where o could get this? I know the dances are available on YouTube but would like to watch it as it is supposed to be
  7. I did ask on another thread, but probably the wrong place! What DVD should I buy for the "definitive" Don Q?
  8. A question perhaps for the technies out there: If you record a TV (or radio) programme or similar onto a hard drive as an .mpg file, and then transfer it onto a DVD, will a TV DVD player be able to read it, or will you be doomed only ever to watch it on your laptop or whatever? And what happens if the file size exceeds the 4.7GB a DVD is capable of holding? Could you zip that and put it on a DVD so that you could transfer it elsewhere? Obviously you wouldn't be able to play it without extracting it to somewhere first. I suppose a large-capacity USB stick would be an option, and then I coul
