One of the most famous works of the classical ballet repertoire, The Sleeping Beauty is a sumptuous delight for all ages. Artistic Director Elena Radchenko – a legendary dancer of the Bolshoi – and her Russian National Ballet bring the timeless fairy tale to life with a company of 50 set against ornate sets, gorgeous costumes and of course, Tchaikovsky’s iconic score. The Sleeping Beauty is a supreme demonstration of what classical Russian ballet is known for: steely pointe work, sharply accented spinning turns, soaring leaps, high extensions and daring lifts.
“The Russian National Ballet… is a cut above.” – Washington Post
