NYCB Vol. 6 No. 26 - Sleeping Beauty

In 1988 (3 years prior to NYCB's full production), Merrill Ashley and Lindsay Fischer appeared in the grand pas de deux from Sleeping Beauty in the Fourth Annual Dancers' Emergency Fund Benefit concert. Merrill also performed Aurora in 1985 at Jacob's Pillow. In each appearance, the critics were not kind towards her portrayal, so the photo is reproduced here, but not the reviews!
