The Sleeping Beauty

The Bolshoi Ballet gives the first performance outside Russia of Yuri Grigorovich’s magnificent revival of a ballet classic.

Background

Perrault’s beloved fairytale, ‘The Sleeping Beauty’, is imbued with wonder and excitement in this sumptuous ballet. Exquisite costumes by Franca Squarciapino and spectacular sets by the celebrated Italian art director Ezio Frigerio provide a brilliant visual feast. The tale of an ill-fated princess, an enchanted sleep and the magical power of a prince’s kiss is brought to life through Tchaikovsky’s incomparable score. The Bolshoi Ballet presents The Sleeping Beauty to Covent Garden audiences as part of its Golden Jubilee season at the Royal Opera House.
