Piotr Tchaikovsky wrote about this ballet, “The plot is so poetic and cut out for music that my composing was accompanied with tremendous delight and enthusiasm which generally determine the value of any work”. The outcome seems to have exceeded all expectations: The Sleeping Beauty, choreographed by Marius Petipa and first produced in 1890, was to mark the beginning of a new era in the development of ballet. Grand pageantry, lavish decorations and a superb performance of ballet artists – all these indispensable attributes are duly found in our theatre's production as well.
