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.
Ballet Idaho aims to use the art form as a tool of enrichment for people from all walks of life. And with nearly 25,000 audience members catching a performance in 2016 and another 10,000 kids reached in the 2015–16 school year, it's fair to say they're succeeding. While their four annual main-stage productions steal much of the spotlight, it's far from the only way the company reaches out—a roster of 10 teaching artists works diligently in their Academy of Dance, and their educational outreach program connects the dancers with students throughout Idaho.
