Why See State Ballet Theatre of Russia - Sleeping Beauty?
A Russian Sleeping Beauty!
Award-winning dancer Nikolay Anokhin has taken the reins at the celebrated State Ballet Theatre in Russia, and is set to take his company on the road in America with their enchanting four-act production of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov's fairytale ballet. With Tchaikovsky's elegant and thrilling score, revel in the story of Princess Aurora and her struggle against the evil fairy Carabossa.
On the day of her grand christening, the Princess Aurora is admired by all in the kingdom, including a cast of fairies, ready to imbue her with the virtues she'll need in life. But one fairy is left off the guest list- the evil fairy! Furious, she bursts into the hall and curses baby Aurora, wishing her to die upon her 16th birthday, after pricking her finger on a spinning wheel. But all is not lost, the strong Lilac fairy, while not able to undo the curse, can adapt it, and instead Aurora will sleep...for 100 years...
