Bolshoi Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty
May 12 @ 6:30 pm
By Pytor Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Princess Aurora falls under the curse of the Evil Fairy Carabosse on her sixteenth birthday, falling into a deep slumber of one hundred years. Only the kiss of a prince can break the spell. A resplendent fairytale ballet performed by the Bolshoi, The Sleeping Beauty features scores of magical characters including fairies, Little Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots, and a beautiful young Princess Aurora performed by Olga Smirnova, a “truly extraordinary talent” (The Telegraph). This is classical ballet at its finest.
