Live from the ROH: Sleeping Beauty
Celebrate 70 years of the Royal Balletís landmark production and enter an enchanted world of Princessís, fairy godmothers and magical spells. A perennial delight and a much-loved classic, The Royal Ballet's The Sleeping Beauty combines the best of classical ballet, with all its charms and virtuosity, splendid music and talented dancers.
First choreographed to Tchaikovsky's great musical score by Marius Petipa in Russia in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty has wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adageas Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess. The rich evocations of the baroque opulence of a royal court, the panoramic journey of the prince to the overgrown castle and the colourful characters in this famous fairy tale make this Sleeping Beauty a spectacle like no other.
