Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This performance video is a presentation of Ravel's whimsical ballet L'Enfant et les Sortileges. The ballet is performed in the Nederland Dans Theater, under the choreography of Jiri Kylian. The story sets to music the events that befall a young boy, who loses his temper and tears up the furniture and toys in his room. After his anger is vented, and the foul mood has passed, the child is in for a surprise; the furniture and toys come to life with a few ideas of their own.
