Quick Reference

The centrepiece of Petipa's The Sleeping Beauty, in which Princess Aurora is presented to her four suitors in Act I. With its thrilling balances and its emphasis on regally perfect presentation (Aurora has to balance unsupported on one leg and on pointe between taking each of her Princes' hands), it presents a challenge to the ballerina matched only (in theatrical lore) by the 32 fouetté turns of Swan Lake.

Subjects: Dance.
