Of all the full-length works in the repertoire, perhaps none embodies the unabashed exuberance, grace and technical virtuosity of classical ballet as does The Sleeping Beauty. Since its premiere in St. Petersburg in 1890, with a score by Tchaikovsky and choreography by Marius Petipa, the ballet has remained virtually the definitive expression of the western classical aesthetic in dance, casting a spell over generations of audiences, dancers and choreographers, all of whom have responded to its irresistible blend of strong narrative appeal and showstopping spectacle.

While many choreographers have adapted the ballet to their own purposes and visions over the decades, the version created by Rudolf Nureyev in 1966 stands out as being one of the most technically exciting and richly entertaining. Set on The National Ballet of Canada in 1972, it helped put the then still young company on the international ballet map, changing the fortunes and face of the company forever.

Since then, the ballet, with its natural ebullience and dramatic flair, its combination of consummate artistry and sheer showmanship, has always been an audience favourite. Restaged by Artistic Director Karen Kain in 2006, The Sleeping Beauty is one of the National Ballet’s most treasured works and holds a singular place in the company’s history and the affections of its audience.
