Atlantic City Ballet Sleeping Beauty
Written by Tchaikovsky in 1889, Sleeping Beauty has stood as one of ballet’s most beloved pieces since its glowing debut at St. Petersburg’s Imperial Maryinsky Theatre. The ballet opens with an energetic theme that gives way to tinkling harp and a delicate woodwind melody before segueing into the show’s idyllic beginning. The traditional tale of a princess cursed to sleep for 100 years comes alive with professional dancers performing choreography by Artistic Director Phyllis Papa. When all is said and done, and Prince Charming has planted his kiss, guests can meet and greet Princess Aurora.
Ballet Goes Broadway
Usually jazz hands don’t crop up in ballet productions, and pirouettes generally aren’t part of Broadway numbers. But during Ballet Goes Broadway, the rules get thrown off the stage. Choreography by Phyllis Papa joins with show tunes by some of Broadway’s best composers, with live music performed by the AC Ballet Ensemble, to blend the two stage forms. The result: a one-two punch of artistry and pizzazz.
Atlantic City Ballet
Many miles were traveled to form the Atlantic City Ballet. Professional dancers hailing from Italy, Japan, England, Brazil, Latvia, Romania, France, and the U.S. converged to share their love of the art form with New Jersey audiences. It’s a theme begun by founder Phyllis Papa, an international ballet star who established the company in 1982. Over the decades that followed, she and the company introduced the area to classics such as The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and Dracula—all of which bear Papa’s unique choreography.
