La Scala: Ratmansky's Sleeping Beauty

IN BRIEF

’s ‘reconstruction’ of at La Scala made for one of the most interesting and satisfying evenings that I’ve had in the theatre for a long time. It is charming, it is theatrical, it is technically retro-innovative and also demanding for the dancers. Reintroducing some positions and movements, which have been gradually dropped from classical ballet's repertoire of steps, was to see them anew, as though inventions by Ratmansky himself.
