Sleep­ing Beauty by Rus­sian State Bal­let


That's China - - Events -

Sleep­ing Beauty has a spe­cial place in the Rus­sian State Bal­let’s reper­toire. As one of the most lav­ish the­atri­cal events of all time, the orig­i­nal St Peters­burg stag­ing of Sleep­ing Beauty in 1890 was a spec­tac­u­lar il­lus­tra­tion of the Rus­sian Imperial style at its zenith. To­day it re­mains the cor­ner­stone of the Rus­sian State Bal­let’s out­put. The cur­rent stag­ing is di­rected by Evgeny Amosov. With its huge cast, fairy­tale set­ting and glo­ri­ous Tchaikovsky score, Sleep­ing Beauty re­mains the very essence of clas­si­cal grandeur. This ver­sion has all the el­e­ments of an en­dur­ing fairy tale: ro­mance, po­etry, fate, good ver­sus

evil, and - of course - love!
