Darcey Bussell and Roberto Bolle star in Frederick Ashton's Sylvia, restored to the splendor of its elegant, opulent three-act form and featuring the choreographer's darkly comic characterizations. By contrast La fille mal gardee, starring Marianela Nunez and Carlos Acosta, has been treasured as one of Ashton's happiest creations - his artistic tribute to nature and his beloved Suffolk countryside. The Tales of Beatrix Potter bring the famous stories of the English writer and illustrator to life in a warm and witty work for all ages. Swept up in the ballet's childlike exuberance, the entire cast delivers outstanding portrayals of such colorful figures as Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mr Jeremy Fisher, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and the irrepressible Peter Rabbit.
