This review is from: Winter Dreams [DVD]  (DVD)
Not only do you get one hour of pure magic in the Winter Dream ballet, additionally there is a most interesting documentary portrait of the choreographer, Kenneth MacMillan. I watched the documentary first which was a happy decision. By the end of it I felt that I understood where MacMillan was coming from as he explained his new ideas for ballet, for example different moves and expressing real-life emotion. Winter Dreams was the ideal ballet to then watch to see his ideas in practice. I was with the three sisters all the way as they danced through their hopes and disappointments, so much so I felt quite drained by the end - but not too drained to watch it again the next day! I like the fact that the story behind the ballet is clearly introduced at the start and that any of the 11 sections of the ballet can be selected so that favourite parts can be replayed easily.
