X’s Classical Corner: Sleeping Beauty Ballet

Tchaikovsky wrote several ballets, and Sleeping Beauty was the longest; over four hours with intermissions. Sleeping Beauty also has the most difficult series of ballet steps. It takes a very strong, well-trained ballerina to do this sequence properly.

This particular sequence is called the ‘Rose Adagio’, and is performed by Aurelie Dupont.

Nothing wrong with a little culture. I got as little as anybody.
