I always love the Royal Ballet but as far as ballet outings go, Cynthia and I agreed that Sleeping Beauty was far too long. The story of Sleeping Beauty played a neglible role, as the 3 hours was padded with country dances, royal balls and random visits from Red Riding Hood and Puss-in-boots. Nevertheless, Tamara Rojo was gorgeous as Sleeping Beauty (what beautiful arched feet) and Frederic Bonelli was dashing as the Prince. And I loved the evil witch's black outfit!
