100 Days of The Sleeping Beauty
Day 16: choreography
The Sleeping Beauty was choreographed by Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director Ashley Page, but he has kept some extracts of Marius Petipa’s original choreography. These excerpts include two of Aurora’s solos as well as her entrance, which Ashley says captures her bursting with excitement at her 16th birthday party.

Day Nine: Claire Robertson as Aurora

The Sleeping Beauty is the second of Ashley Page’s full-length ballets to be choreographed on Principal dancer Claire Robertson (above). This means that the role of Aurora was created with Claire and was inspired by her style as a dancer.
