Dancing, sets, costumes and orchestra first-rate, music and choreography not. Movement unevocative, repetitive. Music mostly tuneless and unmemorable despite live folk band on stage with dancers in Act II. Highlights include ship on a storm-tossed sea in Act I, a picnic under a giant tree in Act II and one of the statues that comes implausibly but wonderfully to life in the final scene. Householders were divided on whether the governess/nanny character was danced by a man or a woman. Such enormous feet and the hands of a giantess! Reminiscent of Lady Macbeth in the Bolshoi's production. Shall we be seeing more like this, one wonders?
