This promised to be a charming ballet film, and it definitely IS!
10 May 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

This was an absolute delight from start to finish. The choreography was fantastic, as always with the great Frederick Ashton, who himself appears as Mrs Tiggy Winkle. The music was just outstanding, with some elements of Tchaikovsky, some elements of french opera buffe, and some elements of pure English lyricalism, all of which are needed to make a charming ballet production work. I was amazed by the production values, the costumes and scenery were so beautifully designed by Christine Edzard, the whole thing was exquisite to look at. The dancers like Wayne Sleep, Lesley Collier and Alexander Grant brought their charming characters to life through their faultless dancing. My personal favourite was Jemima Puddle Duck flying through the air to the very Swan Lake finale-like music. The mice dance was really charming, in possibly the best known segment of the whole production. I grew up treasuring the stories from Beatrix Potter, and I thought this gave them justice. Another thing that impressed me was the contrast of reality and the imagination, people complained of the Beatrix Potter as a girl bits slowing it down, but as she is only there for about three scenes, I thought it was very effective. All in all, if you love ballet, like I do, and I am 17, and you haven't seen this already, give yourself a treat for an hour and a half. 10/10 Bethany Cox.
