A photographic record of Sadler's Wells Ballet's 1939 production of Tchaikovsky's ''Sleeping Princess'' based on ''The Sleeping Beauty'', under the direction of Nicolas Segueeff and starring Margot Fonteyn and Robert Helpmann. "The book itself is really a collection of 'Action' pictures taken in mystudio of the chief characters from the story, in poses which are as near as possible characteristic ones, taken from the dances they illlustrate, and are placed in the order of their appearance in the ballet itself."
