    Premiere

    May 21, 2020

    The world-famous production encompasses everything lovers of grand classical titles may expect: a dramatic story, Marius Petipa’s magnificent dance sections and virtuoso solo parts, as well as exquisite sets and costumes.

    The Sleeping Beauty, based on Charles Perrault’s popular tale La Belle au bois dormant, is one of the cornerstones of the global ballet repertoire, and musicians consider it to be the very finest of P. I. Tchaikovsky’s ballet scores
