It was a real treat to watch Carlos Acosta dance the role of Sparticus. How I would love to see him on stage. The last time I was so excited was when I saw Irek Murkemadov ( I hope the spelling is correct) dance the role with the Bolshoi at Covent Garden.I would reccomend this DVD to anyone interested in ballet and in particular to those who would like an introduction to some very fine solo dancing both male & female
