The full length ballet was new to me and this production does't disappoint. I find that the Australian Ballet brings these stories to life in a way that no other company does. There are great character roles and the leads are so much fun to watch. I suppose it gets a bit campy in some places, but it's supposed to be amusing. Fiona Tonkin brings just the right amount of innocence and young love to the maiden. It was nice to see her brought out to principal status. Light hearted and entertaining for all ages.

Do not buy this if you live in Australia! I was so excited to get my copy (and had also bought a copy for my sister), only to find that the DVD does not work in this region. So disappointed (and so much poorer!).
