Sleeping Beauty

State Opera

The Sleeping Beauty, based on Charles Perrault’s popular tale La Belle au bois dormant, is one of the cornerstones of the global ballet repertoire, and musicians consider it to be the very finest of P. I. Tchaikovsky’s ba­llet scores. The Czech National Ballet will for the first time stage the ballet’s enthra­lling version created in 1987 by the celebrated Brazilian prima ballerina and choreographer Marcia Haydée for the Stuttgart Ballet. The world-famous production encompasses everything lovers of grand classical titles may expect: a dramatic story, Marius Petipa’s magni­ficent dance sections and virtuoso solo parts, as well as exquisite sets and costumes. Haydée’s creation, foregrounding the character of Carabosse, has been performed by a number of internationally renowned companies, including the Royal Swedish Ballet, Ballet van Vlaanderen, West Australian Ballet and Korean National Ballet.
