Michigan Ballet Theatre’s fully staged magical production of the Sleeping Beauty promises to be a delight for all ages. A favorite in the classical repertoire, this beautiful fairy tale by Charles Perrault with music by Tchaikovsky, is lush and elegant in presentation yet fascinating and suspenseful in plot. Lose yourself in a mythical Kingdom where benevolent fairies have the power to conquer evil. Follow the Lilac Fairy through an enchanted forest as she leads Prince Florimund to Sleeping Beauty. Watch as he awakens her with a kiss that dispels the curse that has lasted 100 years. Enjoy the wedding celebration, complete with pomp and ceremony, as Princess Aurora and Prince Florimund are united in matrimony. This enchanting ballet will entertain audiences both young and old, with flawless dancing, special effects, and captivating costumes. Featured in the principal roles of Princess Aurora and Prince Florimund will be guest artist Abigail Simon, and Edson Barbosa from the Joffrey Ballet. The role of the Lilac Fairy will be shared by MBT’s own Julia Best, and Anna Stabnick.
The original musical score composed by Tchaikovsky in 1889, 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 with staging by Cornelia Sampson, Artistic Director of Michigan Ballet Theatre. Notable moments include the Rose Adagio, the spell cast by Carabosse, the wicked fairy, and the third act wedding, featuring the Pas de Deux between Aurora and Price Florimund. Included in Aurora’s wedding festivities are dances performed by fairytale stalwarts, the Blue Bird and Princess Florine, Puss-in-Boots, and Little Red Riding Hood.
