The Sleeping Beauty. The Dutch National Ballet. 2010.
The DNB revived the 1981 version by Englishman Peter Wright. Wright’s production has all the glitter and style that befits a ballet originally intended for the court of the Russian tsar.
The Sleeping Beauty (1890), created by the French-Russian choreographer Marius Petipa, is the purest and most demanding of classical ballets. With its rich dance vocabulary and dazzling virtuosity, it is still regarded as the yardstick by which to measure ballet companies and individual dancers.
