The Sleeping Beauty


Prince Florimund and Princess Aurora costume sketches for Dances From The Sleeping Beauty designed by Kay Ambrose (1957).

The earliest versions of The Sleeping Beauty performed by The National Ballet of Canada between 1953 and 1959 featured a series of short dances from the final act. These excerpts were performed in various high school auditoriums and other small venues across North America.
