Summary
“The original version of The Sleeping Beauty, choreographed by Petipa and scored by Tchaikovsky, was a triumph of excess, loaded with silk, velvet, fur, fountains and visions of gods and kings. When David McAllister created his own Beauty in 2015 - his first full length ballet - he envisioned a sumptuous traditional production that would preserve Petipa’s gems while introducing modern pacing and narrative logic. When it came time to choose a designer, his dream candidate was the award-winning Gabriela Týles̆ová: she accepted the commission over tea and muffins in a Surrey Hills café on McAllister’s 50th birthday. Her wildly imaginative design evokes a gilded, fairytale version of the Baroque, luscious with roses, peacocks and glittering crystals. Petipa would be proud.”--Last page
