Sleeping Beauty - Sint-Petersburg BalletMap
23-10-2011 until 23-10-2011 Starting at 19:00 Ending at 21:00
This is a ballet for the whole family. The Baptism of Princess Aurora is interrupted by the evil fairy Carabosse who is upset because she was not invited to the celebration. The evil fairy then curses the Princess foretelling that she will prick her finger on a needle and die. This is prevented but the Princess instead falls into a deep sleep and can only be awakened by the kiss of her true love...
Sleeping Beauty has a long tradition in Russian ballet, it's first production was shown in Saint Petersberg in 1890. This show differs from the mainstream telling of the fairytale so it is fresh and exciting even for those very familiar with the story. The performance of Tchaikovsky by a live orchestra is sure to be one of the highlights of the evening.
