Mr. Jeremy Fisher, Mrs. Tiggy-winkle, Jemima Puddle-duck, Squirrel Nutkin, Pigling Bland – indeed all the delightful and famous Beatrix Potter characters – come to life in this colourful and imaginative musical interpretation of her tales, choreographed by Sir Frederick Ashton, composted and scored by John Lanchbery, and danced by members of the Royal Ballet. Five of the famed Victorian author’s most well-known stories – with guest appearances of characters from other themes – have been linked to present an enchanting story-line that will thrill adults and children alike.

The copy I bought has been played so many times that I now have to replace it.
The dancing and music are superb - my grandchildren cannot sit still in their seats when the DVD is on. They prefer this DVD to any of the other DVDs they have in the house.
Most highly recommended.
This original film version of the ballet has continued to be very popular - achieving somewhat of an evergreen classic status. The film was made on-location in the Lake District which leant a totally individual charm to the setting of the story and dances. These settings are, of course, simply unavailable to the later stage production which has also undergone considerable modifications to both the story content and choreography of the dances while maintaining all the essential charm and humour. In both the film and the staged ballet each tale is delightfully portrayed and equally delightfully danced by all concerned. The costumes are of the same high calibre as the dancing. The finale brings all the tales together in time-honoured fashion. This film version also brings in additional story content by including a young girl in the early part of the film who takes the role of Beatrix Potter and enacts the inspirations behind the creation of the Tales.
The camera work is totally sympathetic giving nice balance between detail and more general shots. The sound is presented in stereo and the Blu-ray restoration of the 1971 film has been expertly achieved with good colour and clear, clean imaging. The presentation includes a second disc containing a DVD version of the same content.Read more ›
