Could someone help me on this, as I can't seem to find a definitive answer: Was the Lilac Fairy a dancing or a non-dancing role in the original (1890) production (or subsequent Petipa productions) of The Sleeping Beauty?
Thanks for your help!

Thank you, Cristian. And here's another thread that may help you, Daniel.


You may also want to browse through other topics in this sub-forum. Sometimes members include relevant info in posts primarily devoted to other aspects of the ballet.
