The setting of all the pieces involved a combination of puppets, people and people wearing masks etc. The technical problems were `daunting' and required `many tricks and seemingly impossible shots, some of which challenged the imagination, and tested the patience, of everyone but the extraordinary "Spitting Image" team' quoting the booklet information.
One further quote sums this project up `They are the living proof that one should always dare to imagine the impossible, and then attempt it'. So does this entertainment work? The answer is a resounding "Yes" in my opinion.
As evidence I would comment that for many years I taught children of ages 6-11 in various classes. Every year I played this Peter and the Wolf as an end of term treat and, without exception, all the children of all backgrounds were completely entranced for the whole half hour. This, at a time when there was considerable competition from video games and TV animation. Furthermore, I as an adult always enjoyed the repeated experience without it ever failing to communicate its gentle humour aimed at a wide age-span and children of all ages up to retirement!
This is without doubt the most imaginative and enjoyable production I have ever seen of the piece. The rest of the disc is also thoroughly enjoyable as bonus material. The visual recording could not be bettered and the 4:3 format is irrelevant.Read more ›
But, that said, the musical performance is exemplary, beautiful and very professional.
Needless to say the kids absolutely love it and play it over and over. So, there is some hope that the Classics are not yet dead with the young.
My sadness is that the childlike visual imagination is taken over, and that is never ideal.
On subsequent viewings with the children, I too have come to appreciate the simplicity and sincerity of this disc. Well done!

Both the book and the cd are of an excellent quality. My boys enjoyed it a lot and since they found it a bit scary I had to sit down with them, and I really enjoyed it myself.Published on 8 Feb. 2012 by paolac
