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 traditional tale of a princess cursed to sleep for 100 years by a malevolent fairy comes alive with choreography adapted from legendary ballet master Marius Petipa, whose powerful and technically dazzling choreography has remained the standard for more than a century. Notable moments include the third act wedding between the awoken princess and her valiant suitor, featuring dances by such fairytale stalwarts as Puss-in-Boots, Little Red Riding-Hood, and Cinderella.

Written with fervor after the lukewarm reception of his Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky's score is best known for its use in Walt Disney's 1958 adaptation of the tale. Taking full advantage of his evocative melodic powers, Tchaikovsky opens the ballet with a thunderous introduction that features whirling strings blasting in syncopated rhythms while trumpet fanfares blare through the auditorium, letting monarchs waiting in the wings know it's time to take their seat. Finally, the explosive energy gives way to tinkling harp and a delicate woodwind melody that segues into the show's idyllic beginning.
