Royal Opera House: The Sleeping Beauty
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
This production of The Sleeping Beauty has been delighting audiences in Covent Garden since 1946. A classic of Russian ballet, it established The Royal Ballet both in its new home after World War II and as a world-class company. 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. This ballet is sure to cast its spell over anyone who sees it.The Royal BalletMusic: Pyotr Ilyich TchaikovskyChoreography: Marius PetipaConductor: Simon HewettOrchestra of the Royal Opera House(12A as live) |Approx. running time: about 3 hours
