The Sleeping Beauty
Loudoun Ballet Company will present our new full-length production of The Sleeping Beauty, a fairy tale told through dance. In the familiar tale, the King and Queen are delighted by the birth of a daughter, Princess Aurora. The entire Kingdom is invited to attend the christening of Princess Aurora. The fairies of the Kingdom each offer a gift to the new princess. Candide, the fairy of purity, Coulante, the fairy of vitality, Breadcrumb, the fairy of generosity, Canary, the fairy of eloquence, and Violente, the fairy of passion, all dance a lovely variation for the Court. The evil Carabosse has not been invited to the festivities. She casts a spell on the young princess, cursing her with death at the age of sixteen by the prick of her finger with a spindle needle. The Lilac Fairy, the fairy of wisdom, has not yet bestowed her gift, and changes Carabosse’s curse — Princess Aurora and the Kingdom will fall into a deep sleep for one hundred years, and the Princess will be awakened only by the kiss of her true love.
Prince Florimund discovers the overgrown Kingdom while hunting in a deserted wood. He finds Princess Aurora, is instantly in love with her, kisses her and awakens her and the Kingdom from a century-long slumber.
The Kingdom rejoices in the betrothal of Princess Aurora to the handsome, gallant Prince Florimund. Characters perform for the Court, first Bluebird and then the Red Riding Hood and the lively Wolf. The Prince and Princess dance to show the contentment in their hearts, and dance a lovely pas de deux celebrating their wedding.
