The Sleeping Beauty is one of the most loved treasures of classical ballet; this classic tale in which good confronts evil, will be performed by Melbourne City Youth Ballet in November.
When the King and Queen host a joyous christening celebration for the baby Princess they invite the fairies to bestow gifts on the child. Foolishly they neglect to invite the evil fairy Carabosse, who upon finding out, curses the child to prick her finger and die on her 16th birthday. Fortunately The Lilac Fairy is able to alter the curse so that Princess Aurora will sleep for 100 years, to be awoken by the kiss of a Prince. A joyous wedding then follows.
Artistic Director Yuiko Masukawa’s captivating production honours the style of Marius Petipa. With beautiful sets and costumes, the magical tale unfolds to the famous music of Tchaikovsky.
Full of colour and delight, The Sleeping Beauty is a magical escape and a sublime story ballet suitable for the whole family.
