Sleeping Beauty is one of the cornerstones of the world ballet repertoire and in musical terms is considered the most perfect of all P. I. Tchaikovsky’s ballet opuses. Perrault’s famous fairy tale of a girl who cuts herself on a thorn and falls asleep for one hundred years is not only intended for classical dance lovers. Javier Torres’s enthralling version after Marius Petipa is for the National Theatre Ballet a truly great opportunity for the consolidation and development of virtuoso artistic performances.
