The Sleeping Beauty, Royal Ballet, Covent Garden, review

Steven McRae’s hard-won brilliance is often revelatory. His technical facility strips away the sticky build-up of fudge and compromise that have blurred familiar steps and displays them newly minted. The hummingbird flutter of his entrechats is given greater clarity by the sheer time he spends in the air. His extraordinary spatial awareness allows him to inhabit the music with almost eerie synchronicity.
Sleeping Beauty, which opened at the Royal Opera House, is not famous for the bravura of its Prince, but McRae works his magic on moves that pass unnoticed in lesser hands – notably the short solo to the woodland sarabande in Act 2, which turns classroom displays of alignment and port de bras into things of melancholy beauty. His wedding variations were a physical expression of Bournonville’s "manly joie de vivre", his jumps riding the air, his landings pinching the floor in flawless fifth position.
2014’s Young Australian Achiever of the Year was well-matched once again by the sure-footed and musical Sarah Lamb and the couple will feature in the March 19 live cinema relay. His management of the swooping fish dives in the grand pas de deux was exemplary. Pyrotechnicians aren’t usually known for their partnering but McRae can make every duet seem made to measure. Covent Garden’s attempt to exhume and embellish the 1946 Oliver Messel production has not been an unqualified success, but the sets, and Peter Farmer’s dreamy Act 2 transformation, work their magic (even when the costumes do not).
