The Royal Ballet, The Sleeping Beauty
The Sleeping Beauty is one of the best loved fairy tales of all, and has been adapted into one of the most delightful ballets of the classical repertoire. It also has a very special place in The Royal Ballet’s history, as it was the work with which the company reopened the Royal Opera House in 1946 after the end of World War II.
The Royal Ballet’s version, set to Tchaikovsky’s memorable score, is essentially the 19th century Russian classic. The production is a miracle of clear and transporting story-telling, framed by Oliver Messel’s sumptuous original designs and glittering costumes, later complemented by Peter Farmer’s.
