Peter and the Wolf DVD (The Royal Ballet School)

Peter and the Wolf, Prokofiev's musical fairy tale, has been delighting children since 1936. Nearly 60 years later, in 1995, the young choreographer Matthew Hart created a witty choreographed version for The Royal Ballet School with designs by Ian Spurling. Described as 'an utterly delightful ballet and a perfect showcase for the younger students' by former Royal Ballet Director Monica Mason, it was staged again – and recorded for this DVD – in 2010.
