Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: La Fille Mal Gardée [DVD]   (DVD)
I am not a Ballet fan at all, in fact I have never seen a ballet on TV through, but I love the music, so ---
I bought 3 ballets to try; La Fille Mal Gardee was the first one to be shot down.
Boy was I wrong! It is delightful.! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole performance from the star-crossed lovers
to the dancing chickens. The Covent Garden stage looked light and airy, the dancers bounced their way
From scene to scene, it just seemed so much FUN with the audience and dancers enjoying themselves.
(Not to mention the Collier/ Coleman scenes of stolen kisses)!
My verdict - Great. I now have to try DVD number 2 and go on to Don Quixote.

I love this review. It's just what reviews ought to be - a spontaneous reaction, and that delightful admission that it's better than expected. May you continue to enjoy ballet (especially 'La Fille Mal Gardee' - depending on the cast, of course!) in all its various shapes and forms.
