The Sleeping Beauty - Royal Ballet

Back in 1946 a new production of “The Sleeping Beauty” opened at the Royal Opera House, marking the first time that the Royal Ballet would be staged at the Covent Garden venue. The production was staged by Ninette de Valois and would be widely remembered as a landmark version of Tchaikovsky and Petipa’s famous ballet.

Now, 75 years later, the production is set to return to its home at the Royal Opera House and London theatre audiences will once again have an opportunity to witness the extraordinary version of a classic ballet. It is set to begin its run in October 2011.

“The Sleeping Beauty” is one of the most famous ballets of all time, with music provided by Tchaikovsky in 1889 and Marius Petipa providing the original choreography. It was first seen by audiences in St Petersburg in 1890 and has since been performed on stages all over the world, from Moscow and London to Milan and Philadelphia. So its latest appearance at the Royal Opera House is not to be missed and it is certain that there will be plenty of fans across the capital hoping to pick up ballet tickets and relish in Ninette de Valois’ glorious interpretation.

Ninette de Valois was a renowned dancer and choreographer and was the founder of the Royal Ballet, meaning that her legacy was easily sealed during her lifetime. Her work has been seen all over the world and she regularly staged productions at some of London’s most famous venues.

“The Sleeping Beauty” is at the Royal Opera House from Saturday 22nd October 2011 to Wednesday 21st December 2011.
