In the final programme of her six-part series, in association with Bolshoi Unseen on Sky Arts 2 HD, Deborah Bull focuses on a ballet that represents for many the ultimate 19th century classic: Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty, (pictured).

"It's a ballet that has it all – glittering choreography, glorious music and a timeless story of good overcoming evil," says Deborah.
