Ashton Collection Volume 2 DVD (The Royal Ballet)

Notify me when this product is available:

Discover the magnificent world of Frederick Ashton's work with the Ashton Collection Volume 2 DVD, featuring the full-length ballets Sylvia, La fille mal gardée, and The Tales of Beatrix Potter. Gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for these masterpieces 

Darcey Bussell and Roberto Bolle star in Sylvia, restored to the splendour of its elegant, opulent three-act form and featuring the choreographer’s darkly comic characterisations. By contrast La fille mal gardée, starring Marianela Nuñez and Carlos Acosta, has been treasured as one of Ashton’s happiest creations – his artistic tribute to nature and his beloved Suffolk countryside.

The Tales of Beatrix Potter bring the famous stories of the English writer and illustrator to life in a warm and witty work for all ages. Swept up in the ballet’s childlike exuberance, the entire cast delivers outstanding portrayals of such colourful figures as Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mr Jeremy Fisher, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and the irrepressible Peter Rabbit.

Ashton Collection Volume 1is also available, which includes The DreamSymphonic VariationsThe Two Pigeons and many more

I am thoroughly enjoying all the ballets. I had never seen Sylvia or the Tales of Beatrix Potter but love both of them and have already watched Sylvia twice. It was a joy to re-visit La Fille Mal Gardee which I saw many years ago. Altogether a lovely collection which will give me many hours of pleasure.
