Russian National Ballet Theatre: The Sleeping Beauty
- April 19, 2015 at 4:00 pm
Considered the crown jewel of legendary choreographer Marius Petipa's career, The Sleeping Beauty is the magical fairy tale of the beautiful, sleeping princess who awaits the kiss of her prince. Brought to life by one of Moscow's finest ballet companies, this enchanting tale is set to Tchaikovsky's magnificent score. A grand theme of good versus evil, the ballet is about the story of Aurora, who has been cursed since birth by the evil fairy Carabosse. After pricking her finger on a spindle, the princess and her whole kingdom fall into a deep sleep that will last one hundred years until she is saved by the brave prince, Désiré. Luminous costumes, elaborate sets, and the graceful movements of these gifted Russian dancers result in a sublime afternoon of breathtaking artistry.
