Set on Tchaikovsky’s masterful score, 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.
The masterful 19th-century choreography of Marius Petipa, is combined with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon, where they create an enchanting sequence of gems in the ballet repertory – from the iconic Rose Adage, when Aurora meets her four royal suitors, and the lilting Garland Waltz to the Vision Pas de deux, as Florimund sees Aurora for the first time, and the celebratory divertissements and final pas de deux that bring the ballet to its glorious close.
The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House is directed by Simon Hewett. Lauren Cuthbertson and Federico Bonelli are Princess Aurora and Prince Florimund.
2019-2020 Royal Opera House Live Season is distributed in Italian cinemas by Nexo Digital.
The performance lasts about 3 hours, including two intervals.
