Description

The story of The Sleeping Beauty spills over with fairies and princes, passion and despair, magnificence and splendour, and the ballet version of this classic tale is the most romantic and spectacular of all. Australian Ballet Creative Director David McAllister's impressive 2015 production of The Sleeping Beauty, ornamented by internationally celebrated designer Gabriela Tylesova's lavish costumes and sets, cast a spell of delight on its audiences, and was a sellout success. Now David McAllister and Gabriela Tylesova weave their magic again, transporting the enchantment of their 2015 production of The Sleeping Beauty to the pages of this book. David's text and Gabriela's illustrations recreate the world of this favourite ballet for readers to enjoy again and again. Based on the spectacular Australian Ballet production of The Sleeping Beauty.

Author Biography

David McAllister was principal artist with The Australian Ballet for twelve years. During that time, David also danced as guest performer with Bolshoi Ballet, the Kirov Ballet, the Georgian State Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada, Birmingham Royal Ballet, and Singapore Dance Theatre and, in 1992, as part of a Royal Gala performance in London in the presence of the Princess of Wales. In 2001 David took his final bow as a dancer and became Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet. He was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia in the 2004 Australia Day Honours List and, in 2015, David premiered a new production of The Sleeping Beauty. It is on the 2015 Australian Ballet production of The Sleeping Beauty that the Little Hare book The Sleeping Beauty is based.

She is an award-winning designer who has won international acclaim for her costume and set designs across the full spectrum of the arts, including theatre, opera, dance and film. Career highlights include: Love Never Dies, Cosi Fan Tutte, Sweeney Todd, L'elisir D'amore, Dido and Aeneas, Acis and Galatea, Salome, Il Turco In Italia, The Rabbits, The Visit, Cyrano De Bergerac, The Pillowman, Urinetown, Tomfoolery, Macbeth, Fireface, Attempts On Her Life, Volpone, This Little Piggy, Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead, Scheherazade, Boomerang, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum and First Wives Club. Gabriela has recently completed designs for Opera Australia, Barking Gecko's new opera The Rabbits, Queensland Theatre Company's Ladies In Black and the upcoming Sydney Theatre Company and Global Creatures musical Muriel's Wedding. Gabriela collaborated with David on a production of Scheherazade in 2006 which lead to their collaboration on the lavish Australian Ballet production of The Sleeping Beauty. This sparked the idea to create a book inspired by their production. The Sleeping Beauty is Gabriela's debut in the world of book illustration. www.gabrielatylesova.com
