The programme for Serge Diaghilev's London staging of Tchiakovsky's The Sleeping Princess, performed by the Ballets Russes. The lavish production featured the designs of Leon Bakst and choreography by Marius Petipa. The long run of 115 performances at the Alhambra nearly bankrupted Diaghilev. The programme includes a cast list and a plot synopsis, plus many stylish contemporary advertisements.
