The Sleeping Beauty: Performed by the Moscow Festival Ballet

Presented by Appell Center for the Performing Arts at Unknown

Apr 03 2016
The Sleeping Beauty: Performed by the Moscow Festival Ballet

The Moscow Festival Ballet Company brings the well-known fairy tale to life through sharply-accented spinning turns, soaring leaps and daring lifts. Experience a magical kingdom, as a young girl’s coming of age and the triumph of good over evil are developed dramatically and musically during the course of the ballet.

A baby princess, condemned at her christening by an evil fairy to prick her finger and die on her 16th birthday, is saved by the gift of the good Lilac Fairy, who declares the princess will only sleep until awakened by the kiss of a prince. The fairy tale, replete with a king and queen, fairies both good and evil, a beautiful princess and dream prince, magical stage effects, and courtly splendor, lend itself perfectly to the full evening ballet that was Petipa’s pride.
