Sofiane Sylve (Aurora); Gaël Lambiotte (Prince Siegfried);

Tchaikovsky and Petipa's timeless ballet - acknowledged to be the most pure and demanding piece in the classic romantic repertoire brings out Petipa's rich dance vocabulary with the sparkling virtuosity a superb performance needs. Recorded at Het Muziektheater in Amsterdam with The Dutch National Ballet in 2004. Choreographer Sir Peter Wright's sensitive staging closely reflects Marius Petipa's original work. Philip Prowse's ravishing Baroque sets and costumes add the glamour and grandeur essential to a ballet intended for the court of the Russian Tsar.

"Nobility and refinement in a unique production...With its lush sets and costumes, and the gold covered glittering castle, The Sleeping Beauty is still the most beautiful thing ever to appear on Dutch stages." (NRC Handelsblad)

"Dazzling Sleeping Beauty!...Sylve has everything for the role of Aurora...Together with Gaël Lambiotte she forms the ideal pair. He is a fantastic partner, supporting andstimulating, and, above all, radiating aristocratic allure in his astounding solo’s..." (De Telegraaf)
