The Sleeping Beauty

Audiences are transported to a world of fairy tale princesses, malevolent witches, storybook kingdoms, and true love’s kiss in this most cherished ballet. Considered the crowning jewel of Petipa’s career, The Sleeping Beauty is the magical tale of a beautiful princess who waits in slumber to be awakened by the kiss of her prince. Opulent costumes and sets, Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score—which he thought was perhaps his best piece of music—and the elegant movements of these extraordinary dancers result in an evening of breathtaking artistry. Wishing to bring together the best of Russian ballet, Sergei Radchenko, legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, founded this esteemed company of leading Russian dancers in 1989. “The dancers of the Moscow Festival Ballet spoke to the soul through the body.” (Post and Courier)
