Christopher Wheeldon's acclaimed new full-length production for Dutch National Ballet is an imaginative reinterpretation of a much-loved classic. Inspired by the original Brothers Grimm fairytale, Tony award winner Wheeldon gives the characters renewed depth and complexity, complementing Prokofiev's celebrated and colourful score. With sets and costumes by award-winning designer Julian Crouch, this production is a truly magical experience, bringing an age-old fairy tale into the 21st century. For the DVD / Blu-Ray release, we recorded a choreographer's commentary with Christopher Wheeldon and Jackie Barrett, which provides a fascinating insight for ballet fans.
