Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty is one of the best loved of classical ballets, combining in a single work all the enchantment and virtuosity that ballet has to offer. The royal court, the panoramic journey of the Prince to the overgrown castle, and the great celebratory dances of the happy ending (in which other famous fairytale figures appear) are all brought to life by the luscious designs of this celebrated production, created in 1946 for The Royal Ballet. The inspired performances of its revival for the 75th anniversary of the Company in 2006, together with a magnificent High Definition recording, make this a superb tribute to The Royal Ballet's unique style and visual splendour. Press Reviews "Alina Cojocaru's Aurora was the ballet's radiant centrepiece, charming, in control and filled with a palpable delight in every pretty step." (The Times) "Here we have a visual record of a very enjoyable Royal Ballet production of The Sleeping Beauty. Presented as part of the company's celebrations marking Sir Frederick Ashton's centenary, it was, in fact, a welcome revival of the celebrated 1946 Sleeping Beauty that had provided a significant post-war boost to both the company's morale and its wider reputation." (Musicweb International) "In 2006, the company revived its classic Sleeping Beauty, featuring pretty Oliver Messel designs and a spruce choreography combining the romantic Petipa original with Ashton's hallmark narrative. Nuá±ez is charm personified as the Lilac Fairy, and has there ever been a more enchanting Aurora than Cojocaru?
