On the 6th of June ABT opened The Golden Cockerel, a reworked version of the popular 1937 production created for the Royal Danish Ballet in 2012.

On the 27th ABT will open there new production of The Sleeping Beauty, based on the Ballets Russes 1921 production and created last year.

I had the pleasure of working on both of these gorgeous productions as researcher. It was lovely to see the posters for  both of these productions side by side.
