Sleeping Beauty – 'Waltz'

Extracts | Tchaikovsky

This waltz takes place in Act I, the day of Aurora’s 16th birthday. It became very popular because long excerpts from Tchaikovsky's score - like ‘Once upon a dream…’- were included in the Walt Disney cartoon version produced in 1959.

The full performance is no longer available but other material about the production can be found here.
