The Royal Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 12 April 2017
Category Cinema Screening

These Easter holidays, enter an enchanted world of princesses, fairy godmothers and magical spells, and celebrate 70 years of The Royal Ballet’s landmark production of Petipa’s classic ballet.

A perennial delight, The Sleeping Beauty combines the best of classical ballet, with all its charms and virtuosity, splendid music by Tchaikovsky and talented dancers. With wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adage as Princess Aurora (Marianela Nuñez) meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dance for the happy union of prince (Vadim Muntagiorov) and princess, this is a spectacle like no other.

Captured live on stage at the Royal Opera House, London and screened at Riverside.
