Sleeping Beauty - Royal Opera House | Thespie

Marius Petipa's masterful, 19th-century choreography is combined with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon. Together they create an enchanting sequence of ballet repertory gems – the iconic Rose Adage, when Aurora meets her four royal suitors, the lilting Garland Waltz, the 'Vision' Pas de deux, when Prince Florimund sees Aurora for the first time, and the celebratory divertissements and final pas de deux that bring the ballet to its glorious close. Throughout, Tchaikovsky’s masterful score takes ballet music to a height of passion, sophistication and intensity that arguably has never been surpassed.
