Beryl H Posted April 20, 2012 Share Posted April 20, 2012 If you liked Sergei Vikharev's reconstructions of La Bayadere, Sleeping Beauty and Coppelia, this new DVD/BluRay of Raymonda is a treat, as well as being the first modern recording of this ballet. Vikharev has reinstated the original story, choreography and mime sequences, and looks very opulent, if old-fashioned, some of the costumes are hard to take, especially the men's, but I found if fascinating. La Scala are really stretched and need all their dancers and students plus some extras I imagine, but they all do very well, there are some lovely dances for children. Olesia Novikova and Friedermann Vogel are Raymonda and Jean de Brienne, she has 6 solo's and 3 pdd, including a series of 30 entrechats landing on pointe, never seen that before!
