Sleeping Beauty

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.

Swan Lake

Had he been less rash, Romeo might have avoided his plight, but what chance did Prince Siegfried from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake stand when his quest for love was bent by wizardry? Made melancholy by the necessity of marriage, the young prince sets out to distract himself with a swan hunt. To his surprise, however, the flock he’s tracking lands beside a crystalline lake and transforms into a group of beautiful maidens, led by Odette, the most beautiful of all. The evil sorcerer Von Rothbart has cursed them to be birds by day and women by night, making true love the only key to their freedom. Prince Siegfried seems like the dashing young man for the job, but he would do well to remember that sorcerers stoop to cheating—even at the game of love, and especially at Monopoly.

Olmsted Performing Arts

When a performance studio stages The Sound of Music as its first production only months after opening, you know it means business. For the staff of Olmsted Performing Arts, their dedication to developing students' acting skills and hunger for creative expression continues to generate inspiring performances. These range from classic Rodgers and Hammerstein show tunes to song-and-dance numbers from Footloose, a rousing tale about the adventures of a barefoot podiatrist.
