@E_S_Harper: This production is ridiculously enjoyable: the perfect pastime for a stormy Saturday evening. Fumi Kaneko is just exquisite and the combination of Yasmine Naghdi and Matthew Ball is divine. I hope they dance together forever

@StephenMcGann: Once more, deeply grateful for these streamed performances from @RoyalOperaHouse as part of #OurHouseToYourHouse. @fumikaneko_ is a bit special in this Sleeping Beauty - hope it isn't too long before we see that delayed Odette/Odile debut :-)

@sianmexsom: Thank you @RoyalOperaHouse for another lovely evening’s entertainment, streaming of The Sleeping Beauty. Delightful to watch and the score does not age at all. Missing live performances!

@monnsoon90: Another fabulous performance by @TheRoyalBallet of #SleepingBeauty streamed by @RoyalOperaHouse Costumes beautiful, choreography superb, dancing flawless and @fumikaneko_ incredibly graceful Loved the rats and the cats!

@nurse_palmer: Watching the #SleepingBeauty gosh what a joy! Thank you so much for the live stream! I love and miss you @RoyalOperaHouse so so much

@ephersy: I think @RoyalOperaHouse's Sleeping Beauty is one of my favorite of their productions, esp this one with Fumi Kaneko. This is my second time watching and I still held my breath through Rose Adage. And Carabosse's entrance and curse was so thrilling!
