With its perfect fusion of music and choreographic ideas, The Sleeping Beauty is the quintessential romantic ballet, and it finds its spiritual home preserved in the outstanding classic traditions of the Kirov Ballet.

The stylish grandeur of choreographer and artistic director Oleg Vinogradov's production shows the entire company at its best.

The highest tradition in dance continues with Larissa Lezhnina, one of Kirov's brightest new talents, brilliant as Princess Aurora, and Farukh Ruzimatov's performance in the role of Prince Desire demonstrates both power and grace.

It may be a truism to say that Russians interpret Russian music best, but based on this stunning Kirov Ballet performance it's excitingly and exhilaratingly accurate.

From the principal dancers to the last member of the ensemble, the grace and mastery of this world-class company is clearly in evidence.
