The Kirov Ballet performs Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty in this classic color motion picture from 1965. Kirov ballerina Alla Sizova stars as Princess Aurora, the role which made her a legend among dancers. Yuri Solovyov co-stars as the Prince, Natalia Dudinskaya portrays Carabosse and a young Natalia Makarova has a featured role as Princess Florina. It also features the dancers and orchestra of the Kirov State Theatre of Opera and Ballet, and students of the Vaganova Choreographic School.

This performance was based on the original choreography by Marius Petipa, which the New York Times called "some of the finest classical choreography ever created."

In his review of the film, Clive Barnes called Sizova "radiant and delicate, a great ballerina in the first flush of her powers."

Please note: This program has been digitally encoded from the best source materials available. Best efforts have been made to restore all audio and video imperfections for DVD. But due to the age of the production, this DVD may still contain some of the imperfections inherent in the original master tapes. The historic value of preserving this program on DVD far outweighs those minor technical imperfections that could not be digitally corrected.
