DVD/Videos: ABT's The Dream

Recommended Posts

Today I bought The Dream of American Ballet Theatre on DVD. It is exclusively available at the Royal Opera House store in London, though I am not sure if it has been published. The costumes and mise-en-scène is fantastic, and of course really good dancer. Nick Bottom transformed into a donkey on pointe is too funny :D

I absoluty love my DVD of American Ballet Theater in The Dream. Ethan Steifel and Alessandra Ferri are beautiful! I Also love the core dancing and Herman Cornejo is AMAZING as Puck. Check it out! :)

I bought it a while ago. Not only the dancing is beautiful but also the mise-en-scene and costumes are fantastic. And I love the donkey!!

I was in awe at Asthon's inventive in choreography and at the detailed footwork. Also the way he managed to put the whole story in a short ballet is amazing. The only part I have found missing is that neither Theseus nor Hippolyta are depicted.


I love the sets also - and was astounded at Herman Cornejo's dancing- he seems to make no effort to do very difficult technical stuff.


I was positiverly impressed by Ethan Stiefel from the artistic point of view- I have come to consider him as a technical dynamo, but here he demonstrates he is a good artist also.


I loved Stella Abrera - a very lyrical dancer, whom I hope develops further into a complete artist in future.


Alessandra Ferri is, as always, lovely. A mature artist now, from every point of view


All the above, IMHO :D

The Dream is available via Netflix. Ethan Stiefel has the most beautiful feet! Such an amazing dancer. And of course Ferri is simply amazing. Love her in Romeo and Juliet!

I absolutely loved watching Herman Cornejo jump! He's the most amazing jumper. It looks like he has springs in his feet! I just love the choreography!
