Synopsis

The Sleeping Beauty A Journey to the Ballet of the Mariinsky Theatre by Ima Bong

The book features the forty-eight page classic story taken directly from the first English translation of the French tale - on which the ballet is based - with 50 full-colour illustrations created expressly for this book. Lavishly illustrated by Russian set designer Nikita Polyansky and endorsed and overseen by the curatorial staff of The Mariinsky Theatre to ensure accuracy of representation, this unique rendition is sure to live beyond the exciting first year of it's introduction as companion to an important international event. With the special tie-in to an international press event and the longevity of a classic tale at its core, here is the only book that is sure to endure as classic product for years to come that tells the original story of Sleeping Beauty.
