Choice: The critics: DANCE
Friday 22 December 1995
The Royal Ballet alternates its unashamedly bankable Tales of Beatrix Potter (right) with two other family favourites: Ashton's answer to Torvill and Dean, Les Patineurs (two performances this Saturday and two more next Thursday), and Matthew Hart's new work for the Royal Ballet School, Peter and the Wolf (twice today). Either double-bill is short and sweet fare for the junior ballet-goer. Royal Opera House, London WC2
Hart's other 1995 creation is at Sadler's until 6 Jan. Cinderella, with Prokofiev's sophisticated score and the dumb clowning of the Ugly Sisters, can usually be relied upon to beguile adults and children alike. Sadler's Wells, London EC1
