Russian National Ballet Theatre "The Sleeping Beauty"
Considered by many to be the finest achievement in classical ballet and the crowning jewel of Petipa’s career, The Sleeping Beauty is a lavish theatrical depiction of this well-known fairy tale. With music composed by the king of classical ballet music, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, this grand ballet has it all -— a beautiful princess and a charming prince, a king and queen, fairies, both good and evil, and courtly splendor. After a wicked fairy curses the baby princess to prick her finger and die on her 16th birthday, a benevolent fairy bestows her gift, so the princess will instead fall into a deep sleep until awakened by the kiss of a prince. The unmatched grace of the dancers of the Russian National Ballet Theatre, along with the elaborate sets and beautiful costumes, make this a perfect family event!
