Eva Kistrup has posted a review of the new "Beauty" on her danceviewtimes blog:

A Danish Sleeping Beauty, Sort Of

November 26, 2010

Christopher Wheeldon's production of "The Sleeping Beauty" for Nikolaj Hübbe's Royal Danish Ballet aims to build on the core values of the company, including the strong dramatic skills of its performers. Therefore more focus has been put on the character parts, and he has built bigger roles for Carabousse and the Lilac fairy, the latter a mime part in this production.

The result is a very skillful production with a fast pace, but unfortunately Wheeldon's choice of designer is counter to his project of making this Beauty a truly Danish Beauty.
