Though it is a lovely ballet, I reconstructed on of the solos from Act 3 as part of my Benesh Notation exam, tricky stuff!!

Anyway any revival/ reconstruction is always great for the audiences and the kgl. itself- there should be as many ballets 'alive' in the rep as possible!

I wonder how they relate the story to the children?

That's a good question, and I can't answer it, I'm afraid. I thought it was an interesting point of view, though, because the Bournonville ballets are controversial with many foreigners who find them "racist" (I don't; I think you have to view them in their time, but I think most people would disagree with me).

I find myself constanly defending Bournonville ballets. But it's probably a good thibk as it makes me go and read up to make my defence better each time. I feel I have to defend my heratige (dispite being only half danish)- a strange obligation to my motherland!
