A classic fairy tale was transmuted into one of the seminal works in the international repertory when Marius Petipa first staged The Sleeping Beauty, to a score by Tschaikovsky that ranks among the finest ever composed for a ballet. Peter Martins paid tribute to Petipa’s choreography in creating his adaptation, which blends the majesty of the original with the velocity and energy that remain a hallmark of the Company.
