This production of Tchaikovsky’s classic “The Sleeping Beauty” has been delighting audiences in Covent Garden since 1946. An icon of Russian ballet, it established The Royal Ballet both in its new home after World War II and as a world-class company.

Sixty years later, in 2006, the original staging was revived, returning Oliver Messel’s wonderful designs and glittering costumes to the stage. Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score and Marius Petipa’s original choreography beautifully combine with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon. This ballet is sure to cast its spell over anyone who sees it.
