This was an absolute delight from start to finish. The choreography wasfantastic, as always with the great Frederick Ashton, who himselfappears as Mrs Tiggy Winkle. The music was just outstanding, with someelements of Tchaikovsky, some elements of french opera buffe, and someelements of pure English lyricalism, all of which are needed to make acharming ballet production work. I was amazed by the production values,the costumes and scenery were so beautifully designed by ChristineEdzard, the whole thing was exquisite to look at. The dancers likeWayne Sleep, Lesley Collier and Alexander Grant brought their charmingcharacters to life through their faultless dancing. My personalfavourite was Jemima Puddle Duck flying through the air to the verySwan Lake finale-like music. The mice dance was really charming, inpossibly the best known segment of the whole production. I grew uptreasuring the stories from Beatrix Potter, and I thought this gavethem justice. Another thing that impressed me was the contrast ofreality and the imagination, people complained of the Beatrix Potter asa girl bits slowing it down, but as she is only there for about threescenes, I thought it was very effective. All in all, if you loveballet, like I do, and I am 17, and you haven't seen this already, giveyourself a treat for an hour and a half. 10/10 Bethany Cox.

I caught this on HBO years ago, and was dazzled by the production values. I was even more stunned by the fact that it was a 1971 production: a period in film that was very transitional for children's venues. The sets, costumes and dancing are all executed with a great amount of care in this production. Grab a copy for your kids or grandkids, and watch it with them. You won't be dissapointed.
One can only hope that it will see a DVD release someday.
A time-less masterpiece based on Beatrix Potter′s children′s stories. Beautifully acted (danced) and delightful in every way. Watch out for Joan Benham in the small silent role of Beatrix′ childhood nurse
