The classic fairy tale of a young woman who overcomes hardship (with the help of a little magic) to find all her dreams come true. Boulder Ballet presents the magical ballet The Sleeping Beauty. Be transported to a magical place where a sleeping princess is awakened by a kiss and good conquers evil.A treat for the senses, this production features stunning choreography, scenery, and costumes, and is set to the magnificent score by Tchaikovsky.
Almost 130 years since it was first staged, The Sleeping Beauty has become one of the world’s most popular ballets. Its origins are unknown, as it was verbally passed down through the millennia and not published until the 17th Century. Tchaikovsky’s score is adored—even being used in Disney’s version of the fairy tale, and the challenging choreography is as demanding as it is beautiful. In fact, the Rose Adagio that the princess performs in Act I is considered one of the most difficult adagios in any ballet.
