Ballet for Children Box Set released 2017. Below are the discs. Each of them has already been reported on this website, and you can get more details by using the links provided:

  1. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Wheeldon. 2011. (Grade: A+)
  2. The Nutcracker. Tchaikovsky. 2010. (Grade: B) [Grade adjusted to A- for this box]
  3. Peter and the Wolf. Prokofiev. 2011. (Grade B) [Grade adjusted to A+ for this box]
  4. Tales of Beatrix Potter. Ashton. 2010. (Grade: A)

This is one of the best box sets that Opus Arte has offered. For adult viewers, this Nutcracker faces huge competition, but it's probably as good as any for the kids. I marked down the Peter and the Wolf as a warning to adults that it's a short student recital. But it passes the kid test with an A++. So this is a box set with no loser and a big winner for the consumer with children in mind.
