Sleeping Beauty (1990)
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the original premiere of The Sleeping Beauty, Tomasson premiered his production of The Sleeping Beauty, featuring Tchaikovsky's score and again collaborating with designer Worsaae. In an article about this work, San Francisco Chronicle's Octavio Roca wrote of Tomasson and the company, "San Francisco Ballet, led by a man who was extraordinarily gifted technically and dramatically as a dancer of more than the Balanchine repertory, displays a laudable breadth of repertory that only promises to grow." In 1995, seven principal dancers who danced the role of Aurora were featured as part of a promotional campaign by General Motors for its then-brand new car, the Oldsmobile Aurora.
