The National Ballet of Canada’s production of The Sleeping Beauty became a favourite to perform on tour. In 1973, The Sleeping Beauty traversed North America under impresario Sol Hurok, and the company had its New York debut at the Metropolitan Opera House. The large production continued to be performed around the world including many returns to New York, and tours to Europe and Israel.
