Oh, So Sweet!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Herold - La Fille Mal Gardee / Collier, Coleman, Shaw, Grant, Ashton, Royal Ballet (DVD)
This ballet is sweet. I saw it done live in Chicago when my daughters were taking ballet. They insisted I see it and since then it has been my favorite ballet and I have seen many, many different ballets. This one in particular, takes place in the country and on a farm. Even the chickens are en pointe! The musical score is just beautiful, the plot is sweet and if you buy this DVD, you will be charmed throughout.
I did manage to get a copy on VHS a long time ago and have been anxiously awaiting it's arrival on DVD. The sound and video qualities are superb on the DVD.
This is an absolute must for your ballet collection if you have not seen it. Don't let the title discourage you. You will take a magical trip down Lover's Lane in the country.
Another wonderful ballet is "Napoli", equally a favorite of mine. I have Napoli on VHS and will purchase a copy on DVD. This ballet is just beautiful also. If you purchase "La Fille Mal Gardee", also buy "Napoli". You won't regret it, believe me. The music and dancing are gorgeous!
