Description du produit
"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.

Ce DVD peut merveilleusement initier les plus petits à la danse et à la musique (à condition de leur traduire la voix off, ici tenue directement sur scène par le danseur qui joue le rôle du grand-père).
Cette mise en scène sous forme de ballet est un enchantement. Les enfants y retrouvent tous les ingrédients qui font le succès de cette œuvre depuis plus de 70 ans, et les adultes sont comblés par la musique et les très jolis ballets du Royal Opera House de Londres.
Une vraie réussite !

I'd recommend this to anyone with the desire to step towards bringing the world of ballet to their children, if not for the sake of revisiting their own homey children's tales.
Most of the movements are closer to Modern Dance than ballet. Polunin does leaps but there really is not a lot - if any- of pirouettes in the choreography.
The camera work is great and the image is sharp.
Another well-done DVD from Opus Arte
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.
This is a perennially popular musical story by Prokofiev and has been retold in a wide variety of ways since 1936, the date of composition. This present concept featuring the students of the Royal Ballet School is totally delightful and completely professional. The whole combination of attractions presented here combine to make it very likely that purchasers will get considerable pleasure from it for themselves and for any children they know for a very long time. It seems totally reasonable therefore to rate this as a full 5 star issue.
