Sleeping Beauty – State Ballet Theatre of Ukraine
The State Ballet Theatre of Ukraine will present the full-length ballet Sleeping Beauty in three acts with one intermission and show the world’s most beloved history to Piotr Tchaikovsky’s music.
The evil fairy Carabosse curses Princess Aurora for 100 years of sleep with a single-finger prick on her 16th birthday. Doomed by fate, only a sweet kiss from the prince can break the spell and wake up the sleeping beauty. A bewitching and dark tale comes to life in Andrey Litvinov’s exquisite production, “a master class in classical style” (The Guardian), with “some of the most delightful steps in the 19th-century repertoire”. Visually stunning with lavish sets and elaborate costumes by Konstantin Pinchuk, this superb classical production features Tchaikovsky’s delightful music performed live by the Dnipro Philharmonic Orchestra.
