The Sleeping Beauty ballet in Paris 2013 is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy what Rudolf Nureyev described as the ‘Ballet of Ballets’. This performance, which runs at the Opera Bastille from December 4th 2013 to January 4th 2014, will showcase Nureyev’s version of the original choreography. The lavish sets and colourful costumes are designed by Ezio Frigerio and Franca Squarciapino. Of course, it goes without saying that the music and dancing will be stunning in this landmark interpretation of the renowned classic. This exciting run of performances will be taking place just five minutes walk from the elegant and graceful Hotel Marais Bastille, and we recommend the experience wholeheartedly.
