This DVD has been released to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the death of Simon Jeffes, the founder of the Penguin Caf?® Orchestra. Under its leader and composer Simon Jeffes, the PCO has been making its own idiosyncratic brand of music since the mid-1970s, drawing on classical and avant-garde sources, as well as pop, folk and ethnic forms, with instruments ranging from the piano and cello to the ukulele and penny whistle. This studio recording of performances by the PCO is punctuated with interviews in which they discuss their original and eclectic style. The idiosyncratic music and imaginary world of Simon Jeffes prompted David Bintley to create this ballet, set in a caf?® where penguins resemble people and people resemble penguins. Here, an exuberant cabaret is presented by a succession of exotic creatures. The inventive and amusing choreography, enlivened by Hayden Griffin's ingenious sets and costumes, also highlights the plight of the world's endangered species. The Royal Ballet perform in this studio recording.
