"BRB Sleeping Beauty"
 
   I'm writing from Seattle, WA in the US. The local ballet company (Pacific Northwest Ballet) is going to stage the BRB production of Sleeping Beauty next year. I know the ballet fairly well, but don't know this production -- could someone please send me some information on it? I'm curious to know how close it is to older Royal Ballet productions.

I don't get to this website very often, so I'd appreciate it if someone could respond to me directly. Just make sure to remove the anti-spam section of my address. Many thanks for the assistance.

   Are you sure it's the BRB production (by Peter Wright)? I read that it's the old Ronald Hynd production for the English National Ballet.

   If it is the BRB production than it is a joy - Peter Wright does the classics so well. The only point of difference, as I recall, to many productions is that the Lilac Fairy is a character rather than dancing role. And the end is joyous beyond belief, but I won't spoil it for you.

Hope you are able to drop back and see us - regrettably I can't be fussed with doing stuff twice and frigging with addresses.

   The production that has been purchased by PNB is the *ENB* (Hynd) production.

   Indeed, it is the ENB version -- that's what I get for writing without looking at my notes. Many thanks for the information.

   I finally remembered to haul out my old ENB programmes to remind myself of the production. Very attractive sets (based on a design of "marble" columns with different decorations for each act) and costumes were good, although I seem to remember them being a little over-shiny. A pretty traditional version from what I can remember (although what else would you expect from ENB these days?), with a few extra touches like flying fairies (and Prince). My main memory from the only time I saw it is of Simon Cooper (one of the Rose Adagio princes) being zapped dead by Carabosse!
