The Sleeping Beauty. RB. 2006.

Watch The Sleeping Beauty Here:

Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty is one of the best loved of classical ballets,
combining in a single work all the enchantment and virtuosity that ballet has to offer.
The royal court, the panoramic journey of the Prince to the overgrown castle,
and the great celebratory dances of the happy ending (in which other famous fairytale figures appear)
are all brought to life by the luscious designs of this celebrated production,
created in 1946 for the The Royal Ballet. The inspired performances of its revival for the 75th anniversary
of the Company in 2006, together with a magnificent High Definition recording,
make this a superb tribute to The Royal Ballet’s unique style and visual splendour.
