Tales of Beatrix Potter DVD (The Royal Ballet) 2007


  • 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.
