With choreography by the great nineteenth-century ballet master, Marius Petipa, Tchaikovsky's magical ballet, The Sleeping Beauty premiered at the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg in 1890. A century and a quarter later, The Sleeping Beauty, with a universal appeal that transcends cultural differences, remains one of the best-loved ballets in the classical repertoire. The ballet enacts the legendary tale of a beautiful princess who pricked a finger on her sixteenth birthday and slept under a spell for a hundred years until a prince awoke her with a kiss of true love.
