Recommended Posts

Guest Aleksander

Hello everybody,

 

I have just noticed that TDK is going to realise DVD with "La Sylphide", perforemed by Opera National de Paris.

 

It is new production, filmed in 2004 with A. Dupont as Sylphide and Mathieu Ganio as James.

 

DVD will be avaiable in Europe in may 2005, and in USA/Canada -spring/summer 2005.

 

If you want to read more informations visit: www.tdk-musik.com

Thanks for letting us know. ::runs off to read about video and will be soon adding to collection:: :(

 

Just one correction -- the link is http://www.tdk-music.com/

 

Where on the website did you find news of the future release? Because I'd like to read it, but have been unable to find it. Thanks for clarifying! :wacko: I probably missed it.

hi, i posted on the other board about this. I got this dvd a couple of weeks ago and it's absolutely gorgeous in every way. Mathieu Ganio is magnificent and there are moments that send chills down my back.

 

Video and sound are top notch (as to be expected) and camerawork is quite good.

 

here are some clips i have hosted on xdrive.

the first one is big (like 20MB); the others are smaller.

Hi

 

evilninjaX, I have downloaded your other clips of Kumakawa, but this I seem not to be able to download. Can you upload them again?

(xdrive is a bit... interesting)

 

btw, these are Obv DVD ripps and if you have an ftp site, i could upload full-size (640x480) .avis. they are just too big to host on xdrive. Ditto Kumakawa, if you want nice versions of those.

 

lmk.

We just watched the ballet La Sylphide on DVD this week. It was an amazing production! One of the questions our youngest had was about the pointe shoes worn in the production. They seemed to bend differently than dd's shoes when the dancers rolled down into flat. It seemed as though they bent forward far easier than dd's - more like slippers than her Merlets! Has anyone else seen this ballet and know what I mean? I'd be curious to know if the dancers wore a different type of pointe shoes or if the difference was simply more technique!

Yes--I know what you mean! Maybe they're just a very soft shank? Also, they are professional dancers (with an amazing company :shrug: ), so they will have control over their shoes that students would not because of more experience and strength.

And for ballets like La Sylphide, softer pointe shoes are used than for example Don Quixote.

That's all that I can think of! :D

I noticed that too! But as les sylphides said, professionals do a lot to customise their pointe shoes.

I know that for some ballets, near-dead pointe shoes are required by management.

Very interesting question... out of curiosity, who performed the version you watched on DVD? Thanks!

I will check on Monday who was in my video, I've actually watched two of them, the older one was performed by Ghislaine Thesmar (the sylphide) but I will have to check for the other. Sorry I don't remember the men!

Ghislaine Thesmar danced with Michael Denard. The other La Sylphide is with Aurelie Dupont and Mathieu Ganio, I believe.

The version we watched featured Aurélie Dupont and Mathieu Gano. . . it was amazing!
