This review is from: La Fille Mal Gardée [DVD]   (DVD)
Some interpretations of a work are such perfect realisations that other versions are almost bound to seem pointless and a disappointing falling away from the high spot reached. I have tried other versions of this ballet, but none that I have seen come near to capturing the life enhancing charm, humour and tongue-in-cheek fantasy of this one. It is an absolute delight, and allows the joyful spirit of the music to soar to its fullest possible height. I fear that anyone who comes away from it feeling short changed is likely to have a similar experience of disappointment should they wake up after their eventual demise in Paradise, feeling short changed by some aspect of celestial life which the rest of us will be only too relieved about.
