Tuesday, April 11th 2017 at 7:00 pm

In this HD broadcast from The Royal Opera House, you will be able to enter an enchanted world of princesses, fairy godmothers and magical spells! A perennial delight and a much-loved classic, The Royal Ballets The Sleeping Beauty combines the best of classical ballet, with all its charms and virtuosity, splendid music and talented dancers.

Directed by Peter Farmer, the cast includes:

Marianela Nuñez, Vadim Muntagirov, Elizabeth McGorian, Kristen McNally, Christopher Saunders, Alastair Marriott, and Claire Calvert

First choreographed by Marius Petipa to Tchaikovsky’s great musical score in Russia in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty has wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adage as Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess. The designs by Oliver Messell, one of the greatest stage designers of the 20th century, were restored and updated for this production by Peter Farmer, to be recorded live in 2017. The rich evocations of the baroque opulence of a royal court, the panoramic journey of the prince to the overgrown castle and the colorful characters in this famous fairy tale make this Sleeping Beauty a spectacle like no other.
