Tales of Beatrix Potter DVD (The Royal Ballet) 2007

Notify me when this product is available:

Recorded live at Royal Opera House December in 2007, this stage version of Frederick Ashton's 1971 film Tales of Beatrix Potter brings alive the famous images and stories of Beatrix Potter. Christine Edzard's designs conjure up a lost England of field mice and Berkshire black pigs, of foxgloves and shady groves. Swept up in the ballet's childlike exuberance, the entire cast delivers outstanding portrayals of such colourful figures as Jemima Puddle-Duck, Jeremy Fisher, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and the irrepressible Peter Rabbit. Ashton's warm and witty, yet demanding, choreography creates a piece of charm and grace for all ages.

Tales of Beatrix Potter

Un ballet où l'on peut admirer les prouesses des danseurs, qui ont à supporter un costume dont la tête est un défi supplémentaire. Bravo à Bennet Gartside qui a monté en pointes dans son numéro de cochonnet. C'est un danseur classique émérite. Je l'aime dans tous les personnages qu'il interprète. Beatrix Potter aurait sûrement adoré voir ce ballet, qui respecte ses contes à 100%.

Thank you for your prompt service.
I had lost my original version of the ballet which my two granddaughters adored all those years ago and this new one is for my great grandchildren to enjoy.
Many happy hours were spent dancing around the lounge room, green cushions from the suite on the carpet being used as lily pads. I have to say that we all much preferred the original choreography for Jeremy Fisher danced by Wayne Sleep. So a little disappointing but still magical.
