HASH(0xa3860180) out of 5 stars Enchanting modern production of a favourite ballet July 7 2012
By I. Giles - Published on
Frederick Ashton has claim to be my favourite choreographer and whose work unfailingly exudes style, charm, poise and humour to name but few of its attractions. All of these are clearly exhibited in this marvellous choreographic confection with music arranged and orchestrated by John Lanchbery and which was first performed at the Royal Ballet in 1992.

The original tales themselves may be less familiar to the younger generation than previously as there is so much more competition for younger readers to be found on bookshelves today. In addition, their use of language is not so easily accessible to modern young readers. However, the ballet is another thing entirely being very modern with a very modern sense of humour which appeals right across all ages and generations as can be seen in the very enthusiastic audience's responses.

This ballet has proved to be very popular and features seven of the most familiar tales after the opening Mouse Waltz. The finale brings all the tales together in time-honoured fashion. Each tale is delightfully portrayed and equally delightfully danced by all concerned. The costumes and sets are of the same high calibre.

The camera work is totally sympathetic giving nice balance between detail and more general shots. The sound is presented in DTS surround and in stereo and faithfully captures the expert orchestral playing.

The disc is available as a multi-region issue and, as such, can be bought from abroad if it proves to be difficult to locate in the UK. I have found it to be a delightful addition to my library of Ashton ballets and am sure that it will give great pleasure to children of all ages, including those of more advanced age such as myself! This is, in my opinion, a clear 5 star issue and therefore well worth tracking down.

HASH(0xa3868084) out of 5 stars The best ballet for watching at home Dec 25 2014
By PJ Grogan - Published on
Verified Purchase
Possibly the best ballet for the non ballet lover in your life. Very accessible to both children and adults. For anyone with non British ballet lovers on their Christmas list this is a great gift. My girlfriend is American, had never seen it and adored it.
