What a happy experience watching the DVD of "Peter and the Wolf" danced by the students at Royal Ballet School. My mother made me (yup, force) listen to this music as a child and, much to my surprise, I grew to love it. The students of Royal Ballet School put on a delightful performance of a ballet choreographed by Matthew Hart. Grandfather is danced by Anthony Dowell; the wolf is Martin Harvey, now a member of Royal Ballet. The fate of the duck might be a bit jarring for tykes until the happy resolution at the end, but all in all I think this would be a wonderful ballet DVD or tape to give children. Very good dancing and as such a fun filled introduction to ballet for kids. It's only 30 minutes long and comparatively inexpensive (check amazon.com by clicking on at the upper right-hand corner of this site).

You are so right Giannina!. I gave this tape to two little tykes in my family---a boy of 6 and a girl of 2 and they LOVED it. They were relieved when the duck emerged whole. I think one of the reasons they like it so much is that the cast is young.
