LMF. The Tales of Beatrix Potter. Ballet performance. Family film event

Christopher Robin’s animal friends Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet and others are well known. But what about Peter Rabbit, Jemima the duck and Hunca Munca the mouse, living in the imagination of Beatrix Potter? If you have had the chance to know them in one of the books by the British writer and illustrator, published in Latvian, it will be more interesting to see these characters come to life in the interpretation of the soloists of London’s Royal Ballet. Liepaja Art Forum, in cooperation with the contemporary opera cycle "LULU" invites young viewers and their families to watch the ballet "The Tales of Beatrix Potter" on the big screen. The soloists of London's Royal Ballet bring the characters of a beloved artist to life; they have been wonderfully portrayed in music by the English composer John Lanchbery. Choreographer Sir Frederick Ashton also treated them with respect, for example, his magic Frog really jumps and dances like a frog! The ballet-film is made from several individual stories about the adventures of animals, which are skilfully told by the director Reginald Mills with no words - through music and dance, making it easily perceived by the youngest of viewers. Before the screening, Iveta Grunde, a music teacher and beloved "LULU" lecturer, will present the ballet.
