The Sleeping Beauty | A Beautiful Ballet Journey

disclosure

The Sleeping Beauty

The Sleeping Beauty: A Journey to the Ballet of the Mariinsky Theatre is a beautifully illustrated (illustrated by Nikita Polyansky) and refreshing version of the timeless classic for young and old readers alike.

The storyline follows 11 year old Lena Gabrielle, avid ballet fan, who dreams of attending the debut performance of The Sleeping Beauty at the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, Russia in 1890. Her father doesn’t think she will so lucky, stating “there’s not a ticket to be had in all of Petersburgh”, concluding that he bets not even the stage mice could squeeze their way in. Instead of dashing young Lena’s hopes, this makes her more determined than ever!

There Was Once Upon a Time

This wondrous and mesmerizing fairy tale comes alive within your fingertips. You’ll be in awe of the storyline, the vibrant colors of the illustrations, and the elegant ballet costumes. The Sleeping Beauty: A Journey to the Ballet of the Mariinsky Theatre beautifully pays tribute to the 300th anniversary of Russia’s supreme city of St. Petersburg.

As a ballet fan myself, I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
