Opéra National de Paris

LA BELLE AU BOIS DORMANT (The Sleeping Beauty)

Mar 14, 15, 16 & 19

The Sleeping Beauty is one of the most-loved ballets and will screen twice this season with interpretations from Paris and Covent Garden.

The “Ballet of ballets” as Rudolf Nureyev described it; Sleeping Beauty remains one of the jewels in the heritage of dance. First performed in 1890 at the Mariinsky Theatre, the work combined the talents of choreographer Marius Petipa and composer Tchaikovsky. Inspired by Charles Perrault's tale, they imagined a “fairy-tale ballet” in which dream and reality overlap. In 1989, Rudolf Nureyev restaged the work based on the original choreography for the Paris Opera Ballet, devising a production of dazzling academic virtuosity alternating between lavish ensembles and pas de deux.
