The Russian National Ballet presents The Sleeping Beauty, a crowning jewel of Marius Petipa’s career, with music by Tchaikovsky. The Sleeping Beauty is a supreme demonstration of the challenge of Petipa’s style–steel pointe work, sharply accented spinning turns, soaring leaps, high extensions and daring lifts, all with lavish stage treatment for this fairy tale.
