The Tales of Beatrix Potter

1971 G

The beloved storybook characters of Beatrix Potter -- including Tom Thumb, Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Squirrel Nutkin -- literally come alive in this delightful 1971 production. Featuring Britain's Royal Ballet Company, Frederick Ashton's superb choreography, John Lanchbery's original score and Rostislav Douboujinsky's fabulous costumes, the story follows bashful Beatrix, whose shyness fades when her stuffed animals spring to life.
