Prepare to be whisked away on a magical journey to a storybook kingdom where a beautiful princess, a handsome prince, a King, a Queen and fairies both good and evil all live. Based on the well-known fairy tale by Charles Perrault, The Sleeping Beauty, crown jewel of Marius Petipa’s career, is a grandiose ballet that blends traditional mime, expressive pas d’ action and spectacular divertissements in a lavish theatrical setting. The Russian National Ballet Theatre is an institution dedicated to upholding the grand traditions of the major Russian ballet works which draws principal dancers from the upper ranks of the great ballet companies.
