Perhaps the reason my favourite section of the entire ballet is the pas de trois in the first act between Septimus Smith, his wife, and Evans, is because I know who they are and what the choreography is representing, the Blu Ray captures the moment when Edward Watson jumps out of the window very well too, don't think I saw that in the theatre, and how rough the wood used in the giant frames is.
I found the Vanessa Redgrave DVD of Mrs. Dalloway easy to understand and enjoyable, much easier than the book
Absolutely Beryl - so why are audiences denied a helpful synopsis?
It doesn't even need to be a synopsis: just a few well-chosen words putting what we're seeing into some sort of context would be a help, especially to those buying the DVD who didn't see a live performance and had no chance to buy a programme, and/or haven't read the works to which references is made, however obliquely.
