Over 50 dancers bring a traditional staging of the classic fairytale to life set to the timeless Tchaikovsky score. 

Sleeping Beauty, a crowning jewel of Marius Petipa’s career, is often considered the finest achievement of the classical ballet. The ballet follows the original Brothers Grimm story of a princess who is cursed by a witch at the celebration of her birth to fall into a 100-year sleep when she pricks her finger on a spinning needle. In the original Brothers Grimm tale the King and Queen survive the 100-year sleep to see their daughter’s wedding to the prince.
