Tchaaikovsky’s SLEEPING BEAUTY by the Royal Ballet House.

The Sleeping Beauty holds a special place in The Royal Ballet’s repertory. It was the ballet with which the Company reopened the Royal Opera House in 1946 after World War II, its first production at its new home in Covent Garden. Margot Fonteyn danced the role of the beautiful Princess Aurora in the first performance, with Robert Helpmann as Prince Florimund. Sixty years later, in 2006, the original 1946 staging was revived by then Director of The Royal Ballet Monica Mason and Christopher Newton, returning Oliver Messel’s wonderful designs and glittering costumes to the stage.

Embellished, since its beginning, with superb sections choreographed by some of its most illustrious names, the first ballet presented by the company at Covent Garden is today a greater pleasure than the sum of Petipa, Tchaikovsky and Perrault’s works.
