Hello Forums. This looks like the perfect place to ask a question that i cant figure out on my own. I am looking for a clean recording of the full ballet of Paquita (as in not the Minkus Paquita/La Bayadere excerpt album). I have found the Paris Opera's production but it was a live recording so there are sounds on it like pointe shoes and audience rustling. I understand that Paquita has fallen out of the main stream in the 20th century so there probably aren't a lot of recordings of it. However I would love to stage this ballet.

If there truly aren't any digital recordings of Paquita without live dancers, then could someone point me to the orchestral score instead?

I have searched till my fingers were blue but i cant find anything better than the Paris Operas recording. Thank you anyone that can help out!

Can't help I'm afraid, but just in case you're not aware of it, this is a great resource for scores in pdf format:

IMSLP Petrucci Music Library.

But it's not there either.

There is a CD of the music ( Bolshoi orchestra) on the Pilz label
