Sleeping Beauty Ballet
Moscow Festival Ballet

Sleeping Beauty is often considered the finest achievement of the Classical ballet. It is a grandiose and refined blending of the traditional mime, expressive pas d ’action and spectacular divertissements in a lavish theatrical setting. Performed by the Moscow Festival Ballet, Sleeping Beauty is a supreme demonstration of steel point work, sharply accented spinning turns, soaring leaps, high extensions, and daring lifts.
