Ondine DVD (The Royal Ballet)

Miyako Yoshida dances the title role originally created for Margot Fonteyn in the hauntingly beautiful underwater world of Ondine, vividly brought to life by The Royal Ballet. Frederick Ashton's shimmering choregraphy, Lila de Nobili's ingenious designs and Hans Werner Henze's specially commissioned, magical and vibrantly colouring score memorably combine to evoke the ever-changing moods of the sea.
