American Ballet Theatre’s new production of  Sleeping Beauty had its New York première at the Metropolitan Opera House on the 29th of May.

I  was involved in the production by researching the 1921 Ballets Russes version of The Sleeping Princess upon which American Ballets Theatre’s new production design is based. Designer Richard Hudson used the original designs 1921 as the inspiration for his elaborate sets and costumes. It was a hugely exciting project to be part of!

I was interviewed by both The New York Times and Newsweek.
