NEW YORK CITY BALLET: THE SLEEPING BEAUTY

Ended 24 Feb 2013 after 11 days

Perfect for Valentines' Day!

Closed 24 Feb 2013

Here's a little known fact: George Balanchine never mounted a production of The Sleeping Beauty. He did, however, choreograph The Garland Dance for the 1981 Tschaikovsky Festival, and his choreography is incorporated into Peter Martins? staging of this year's ballet.

For many years it was Lincoln Kirstein's dream to mount the ballet at New York City Ballet. Thus, Martins chose Kirstein's 80th birthday celebration in May 1987, to announce that the Company would produce The Sleeping Beauty. It is one of the most elaborate productions presented by the Company, showcasing over 100 dancers, including students from the School of American Ballet.

Martins' version is presented in Two Acts, that combine the drama and beauty of the original choreography with the speed and energy for which New York City Ballet is known.
