ABT closed out the season with good old uncle Pyotr (Tchaikovsky, that is) and some welcome promotions. This image, by Rosalie O’Connor, is from Bronislava Nijinska’s “Porcelain Princesses” divertissement, which was added to Sleeping Beauty (or, as Diaghilev called it, The Sleeping Princess) by Serge Diaghilev in 1921. The witty miniature has been revived by Alexei Ratmansky for Aurora’s Wedding, a staging of the third act of Sleeping Beauty which was part of the Tchaikovsky Spectacular this week at ABT.

My review, for DanceTabs, is here.
