The Sleeping Beauty Blu-ray (The Royal Ballet) 2017

Royal Ballet Principal Marianela Nuñez delights as Princess Aurora, with Vadim Muntagirov as her Prince Florimund, in this performance of a timeless classic. Marius Petipa’s The Sleeping Beauty holds a special place in The Royal Ballet’s repertory, with its vibrant sets and glittering costumes and featuring such iconic moments as the Rose Adage, the Bluebird pas de deux, the exuberant wedding celebration and the charming fairy-tale guests, all danced to Tchaikovsky’s richly layered music – one of the most beloved ballet scores of all time. This Sleeping Beauty captures all the magic and virtuosity that ballet has to offer.

"If you want spectacle at the ballet then this Sleeping Beauty is for you... With so much richness on stage, in costumes, sets and the sheer number of courtiers and fairytale characters, the view from the stalls is full to bursting."
 The Times

"Oliver Messel's designs – towering arches, fairytale forests – have been deliciously heightened by Peter Farmer to the point of timelessness. The costumes never fail to amaze" The Stage
