The Sleeping Beauty is a much-loved classical ballet that combines in a single work all the charms and virtuosity that ballet has to offer.

First choreographed to Tchaikovsky’s great musical score by Petipa in 1890 in Russia, it has wonderful ensembles such as the famous Waltz, solos including the Rose Adage as Aurora meets her suitors, and, of course, the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess.

The Royal Ballet’s staging is the distinctive production by Ninette de Valois, revived for the 75th anniversary celebrations of The Royal Ballet in 2006.
