Product Description

Product Description

Jean-Christophe Maillot-directed ballet performance. Filmed at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco in 2002, Jean-Christophe Maillot has revived the essence of the original Sleeping Beauty fairy tale by Charles Perrault. The well-known fairy tale has been softened and sentimentalized over the years by both the Petipa and Tchaikovsky ballet and also the Walt Disney animated film. Maillot essentially puts the sex back into the story, interweaving the fantastic and the natural; he constantly amazes us throughout this exceptional dance piece, which was honoured with a Nijinsky Award.

Not the 'Full Monty' & several sandwiches short of a picnic (with no Champagne either).

This is a short modern interpretation taking bits and pieces from the ballet in no particular proper order against a plain modernistic set.

It looks like a bit of fun for the makers and a sort of gala performance for an audience in Monte-Carlo.

This is not the full ballet 'The Sleeping Beauty' and shouldn't be bought by anyone wanting to see the full ballet.

It has very little merit and is best avoided unless you want to see something completely chopped up, short and modernistic with no set to speak of. Additionally, the last 20 minutes of the already short running time is dancing to Tchaikovsky's Romeo & Juliet which merges with The Sleeping Beauty with no warning. A very mixed bag.
