The Sleeping Beauty

The Sleeping Beauty, the Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky-Marius Petipa legendary ballet-faerie – the most perfect creation of two great masters – was the first ballet première in the refurbished Bolshoi Theatre building and it would be difficult to find a more suitable ‘candidate’. This fairy-tale ballet with its profound, underlying philosophical idea – brilliant, lush, in search of ideal harmony – appeared in new festive attire giving form to our dreams of the Bolshoi Ballet’s splendid new life on its home stage now returned to it.

The ballet was produced by Yuri Grigorovich, a connoisseur and admirer of Petipa’s work – this is his third version of The Sleeping Beauty at the Bolshoi and his third co-production of this ballet with the outstanding Italian scenographer Ezio Frigerio. It is, however, their first experience of working together at the Bolshoi Theatre.
