His music continually surfaces in ballets, but Tchaikovsky only wrote music specifically for three ballets — the Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty. Los Angeles Ballet has taken up the challenge of presenting all three during its 2014-2015 season,. With Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty under its belt, LAB’s Tchaikovsky Trilogy continues with its sumptuous new production of Sleeping Beauty with choreography from co-artistic directors Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary after Marius Petipa. After this week’s opening in the South Bay, the production moves to LAB’s other home theaters at Valley Performing Arts Center, Glendale’s Alex Theater, and UCLA’s Royce Hall.
