Sixty years later, in 2006, the original staging was revived, returning Oliver Messels wonderful designs and glittering costumes to the stage. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovskys enchanting score and Marius Petipas original choreography beautifully combine with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon.
