Royal Ballet Sleeping Beauty rehearsal live stream

Recommended Posts

On Tuesday, November 22, the Royal Ballet will stream a rehearsal of The Sleeping Beauty on its YouTube channel, starting at 7:10 pm GMT, or 2:10 pm Eastern/11:10 am Pacific. An archived version is typically posted almost immediately following the live event.





ROH Insight event exploring Marius Petipa’s ballet The Sleeping Beauty will be livestreamed for free via this page and the Royal Opera House YouTube channel from 7.10pm GMT on 22 November 2016.

The event will see presenter Kirsten O’Brien joined by former Director of The Royal Ballet Monica Mason to explore this iconic Royal Ballet production.

Set to music by Tchaikovsky, the ballet holds a special place in the Company’s repertory – it reopened the Royal Opera house in 1946 after World War II, and was the first production staged at The Royal Ballet’s new home in Covent Garden.

The ballet has become synonymous with a number of Royal Ballet greats, not least Margot Fonteyn, and this Insight event will offer audiences the chance to see the Company's current crop of dancers follow in their footsteps as they rehearse extracts from the work.

As well as exploring the history and choreography of the ballet, its fairytale origins will also be discussed by Dr Jenny Bavidge, Academic Director for English Literature at University of Cambridge

The stream is now accessible on demand. It includes Monica Mason rehearsing Kristen McNally and Olivia Cowley as Carabosse, and Samantha Raine rehearsing Tierney Heap and Anna Rose O'Sullivan in fairy variations. Cowley, Heap and O'Sullivan were essentially learning their roles live on camera.



The digital program for the forthcoming run of The Sleeping Beauty is available free of charge with the promo code FREEBEAUTY. Click on the "Do you have a promo code?" link to enter it.
