A magical blend of choreography, stop-motion and live action. Stories from a Flying Trunk captures the enchantment of three classic stories from Hans Christian Andersen. Conceived, written and directed by Oscar-nominated Christine Edzard - and featuring the dancers of the Royal Ballet, choreographed by Frederick Ashton - it is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

The Kitchen contains household objects which come to life and hold an animated conversation.

The Little Match Girl updates Andersen's heart rending tale to London's East End in the late seventies.

Little Ida is an inspired celebration of dance featuring members of the Royal Ballet.
