Enter an enchanted world of princesses, 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 Adage as Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess. The designs by Oliver Messell, one of the greatest stage designers of the 20th century, were restored and updated for this production by Peter Farmer, to be recorded live in 2017. The rich evocations of the baroque opulence of a royal court, the panoramic journey of the prince to the overgrown castle and the colorful characters in this famous fairytale make this Sleeping Beauty a spectacle like no other.
