As one of the most beloved of the 19th-century ballets. No other dance classic has a score so endlessly fragrant and varied. No other work has so rich an idea of what ballet theater can be. 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.
True love awakens with a kiss to triumph over evil in one of the most beloved story ballets of all time. Featuring a vibrant cast of characters, including the innocent Princess Aurora, her dashing Prince Florimund, the malevolent Carabosse, and many more. The Sleeping Beauty is one of the great classics in the history of ballet; enjoy it with your entire family!
