WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Choreography: Marius Petipa Additional Choreography: Sir Frederick Ashton Production: Ninette de Valois (after Nicholas Sergeyev's 1939 production) Set and Costume Design: David Walker The Sleeping Beauty is derived from the "Mother Goose" tale by Charles Perrault. It's the magical fairytale of good, evil, true love, and a spellbound princess who sleeps for 100 years and is awakened by the kiss of a handsome prince. Nissinen introduced this version of the ballet, set to Tchaikovsky's brilliant score, in 2005. He has re-united David Walker's sets and costumes with this version of the ballet, which originated with The Royal Ballet. When Boston Ballet premiered this version of the Sleeping Beauty in 2005, The Boston Globe raved, "The Sleeping Beauty is the greatest challenge in the classical repertory. Boston Ballet met and conquered that challenge last night, in the most luminous performance of "Beauty" I've seen the company give in its 41-year history."
