Ancient Greeks laid the foundations for contemporary theater by composing the first plays and stealing the first Tony Awards from Mount Olympus. Celebrate theatrical progress with today's GrouponLive deal to see Columbia City Ballet's production of Sleeping Beauty at the Savannah Civic Center. For $18, you get one ticket for orchestra-level seating on Saturday, February 11, at 5:30 p.m. (a $37.50 value, including all fees).
Columbia City Ballet, rated the Best Dance Company of 2011 by the Free Times, continues to celebrate its 51st season under the artistic direction of William Starrett. Adapted from the classic fairy tale by master tune weaver Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Sleeping Beauty immerses audiences in the machinations of the malevolent fairy Caraboose, who curses the titular beautiful princess Aurora to 100 years of slumber and 100 dates with an unkempt mannequin. One of Tchaikovsky's most popular works, the ballet features breathtaking displays of toe-balancing grace and seemingly effortless lifts. Memorable scenes include the princess' wedding to her dashing prince, featuring dances by such fairy-tale mainstays as Puss in Boots, Little Red Riding Hood, and Abraham Lincoln.
