Russian National Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty


A fairy tale told through the art of dance.

SATURDAY | FEBRUARY 22 | 3:00 PM

Orchestra: $35  |  Mezzanine: $30  |  Balcony: $25

The Sleeping Beauty is often considered the finest achievement of the Classical ballet. It is a grandiose and refined blending of the traditional mime, expressive pas d’action and spectacular divertissements in a lavish theatrical setting.  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, lends itself perfectly to the full ballet. 

Founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, the company used their new-found creative freedom to invigorate the tradition of Russian Ballet with new developments in dance from around the world. In 1994, the legendary Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko, founder of the Russian National Ballet, focused on upholding the grand national tradition of the major Russian ballet works, and developing new talents throughout Russia, with a repertory of virtually all of the great full works which continue to enlighten, inspire, and entertain audiences across the continent.
