Description

This unique collection brings together four jewels of the Royal Ballet repertoire that will delight and captivate young viewers the world over. Prepare to be enchanted by the timelessly colourful characters of Beatrix Potter including Peter Rabbit and friends; swept up in the magical world of Clara and her beloved Nutcracker; dazzled by Alice’s weird and wonderful adventures in Wonderland; and spellbound by the action in Prokofiev’s classic Peter and the Wolf. “”Peter Rabbits beautiful and magical garden of dreams will transport every adult straight back to their childhood. “” (The Stage – The Tales of Beatrix Potter) “”One of the very best seasonal treats for children and adults alike, the Royal Ballets Nutcracker is a handsome, magical, thoroughly traditional rendering of ETA Hoffmanns immortal if deeply strange story.”” (Sunday Express – The Nutcracker) “”What a treat this is – such an imaginative treatment of a favourite story. There are extraordinary, eccentric sets and special effects; colourful, larger-than-life, argumentative characters and extraordinary costumes. Lauren Cuthbertson, as Alice, is excellent, her every movement suggesting the actions and emotions of this curious, spirited pre-adolescent… Christopher Wheeldons choreography is very imaginative and fitting for every character.”” (Musicweb International – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland) “”…Matthew Harts Peter and the Wolf is one of the most beguiling childrens ballets around. “” (The Daily Telegraph – Peter and the Wolf)
