Editorial Reviews

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 the Royal Ballet's Director, Monica Mason, it was staged again and recorded for this DVD in 2010.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By I. Giles TOP 100 REVIEWER on September 3, 2012
This recording made at the end of 2011 finally brings this popular ballet production from as long ago as 1995 to our screens. The intention was to include as many children as possible in the production and thus to incorporate the widest possible range of ages from the ballet school as possible. This was an immediate success and continues to be so.

There is an interesting short bonus film in which Matthew Hart, the choreographer, explains his intentions and these are copiously illustrated using extracts from the rehearsal sessions. During this film there are short interviews with a number of the children portraying the key characters as well as comments from Sergei Polunin as the wolf and Will Kemp, who takes on the combined role of the grandfather and narrator.

Large numbers of children are also involved by using them to take on parts of the scenery such as the meadow, the trees, the wall and the pond. This is a most imaginative use of the cast and is most effective and William Hart pays tribute to the contributing influences behind his ideas such as those derived from George Balanchine and Kenneth MacMillan.

The production is clearly filmed with crisp detail and good rendition of the many colours to be found throughout the production in the imaginative costumes. The sound is presented in excellent DTS 5.1 as well as in stereo.

In addition to the short bonus referred to above, there is also the usual cast gallery typical of this label.

The packed audience, full of mesmerised children, is fully appreciative of the occasion and is a good indication of the likely success of this recording. The limited playing time is reflected in the slightly reduced price range.
