The Royal Ballet - The Sleeping Beauty (live) 2014


About this Film

First staged in St Petersburg in 1890, '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 revitalised its landmark 1946 production, which re-established Petipa's choreography as recorded by Imperial Ballet r├ęgisseur Nicholas Sergeyev, to a scenario and staging developed by Ninette de Valois herself, founder of The Royal Ballet. With Oliver Messel's gorgeous original designs wonderfully re-imagined by Peter Farmer, and additional choreography by Anthony Dowell, Christopher Wheeldon and Frederick Ashton, today's Sleeping Beauty 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.

Don't Miss It

Reviewer: Heenan73Date: 2014-03-19

I've seen the Royal Ballet's 'The Sleeping Beauty' three times before, and it's a beautiful production. The recent "Giselle" proved that ballet works on the big screen - I can't guarantee tonight's - but I'm quite sure you will not be disappointed.
