The Sleeping Beauty: Russian National Ballet
This sumptuous company of over 50 dancers brings a traditional staging of the classic fairytale to life with stunning precision and artistry, all set to the timeless Tchaikovsky score.
The crown jewel of famed choreographer Marius Petipa's career, Sleeping Beauty tells the magical story of a beautiful, sleeping princess who awaits the kiss of her prince. Brought to vibrant life by one of Moscow's finest ballet companies, under the artistic direction of former Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko, this production’s luminous costumes and elaborate sets complement the graceful movements of these gifted Russian dancers, resulting in a sublime performance.
“The Russian National Ballet is a cut above many of its rivals,” says The Washington Post. “This is the real thing.”
