The Royal Ballet will present Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty at Covent Garden on March 19. Catch a rear glimpse of this world class production at Palace Theatres this April18, 19, 20 and 23 as part of Palace Opera Ballet Season 2014.
The Sleeping Beauty is the pinnacle of classical ballet: a perfect marriage of Petipa’s choreography and Tchaikovsky’s music and a glorious challenge for every dancer on stage. It is also The Royal Ballet’s signature work. To mark the Company’s 75th birthday in 2006, Monica Mason and Christopher Newton revitalized its landmark 1946 production. With Oliver Messel’s gorgeous original designs wonderfully re-imagined by Peter Farmer, and additional choreography by Anthony Dowell, Christopher Wheeldon and Sir Frederick Ashton, this Sleeping Beauty for today not only captures the mood of the original but shows that this is very much a living work for The Royal Ballet, growing and changing with the Company while celebrating its past.
