In Pictures: Lesley Rausch as Princess Aurora

Anyone sitting in the audience for one of principal dancer Lesley Rausch‘s recent performances as Princess Aurora in The Sleeping Beauty was in for a real treat. Ms. Rausch and her partner, fellow PNB principal dancer Karel Cruz, filled the three-hour long production with exceptional dancing and pure ballet magic. Here’s a quick photo recap of some of our favorite moments:
