Closed Caption:
These two ballet recordings, based on the music of the French composer Maurice Ravel and the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev, are recommended to every child, youth and adult whose heart and mind are open for a musical and dancing encounter with the world of fairy tales. Both of them are about a small boy and his dealings with the nature surrounding him. Despite their similarities, though, the two works are fundamentally different. It is the difference between the two which makes this combination so appealing. There are vast differences in content, the structure of the plot, the type of composition and the treatment of orchestral instruments, on the one hand. On the other, the means used by the Nederlands Dans Theater and the Royal Ballet School to realize the material make "L'Enfant et les Sortilèges" and "Peter and the Wolf" two entirely unique works."L'Enfant et les Sortilèges" presents a fantastic ballet fairy tale rich in witty inspirations in dance, costume and stage design with the choreography and design of Jirí Kyliáns and the pioneering Parisian opera allusion under Lorin Maazel. This production was awarded several prizes. And rightly so, for nary any other ballet has ever been met with such enthusiasm and amusement while deeply touching its audiences.
