Tony award-winner Christopher Wheeldon's acclaimed full-length production for Dutch National Ballet is an imaginative reinterpretation of a much-loved classic. Inspired by the original Brothers Grimm fairytale, to Prokofiev's celebrated and colourful score. With sets and costumes by award-winning designer Julian Crouch, this production is a truly magical experience. 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.
