Russian National Ballet Theatre Presents Sleeping Beauty

  • The Story: Based on the tale by the Brothers Grimm, Sleeping Beauty tells of Princess Rose, cursed by a scorned fairy to a hundred-year slumber. The only thing that can awaken her and restore peace to the kingdom is the prince destined to be her true love and his trusty air horn. The story 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.
  • The Score: Written by Tchaikovsky in 1889, the music stands the test of time, making Sleeping Beauty one of ballet’s most beloved pieces since its glowing debut at St. Petersburg’s Imperial Maryinsky Theatre. 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. Finally, the explosive energy gives way to tinkling harp and a delicate woodwind melody that segues into the show’s idyllic beginning.
  • The Company: The performers of the Russian National Ballet Theatre are experts at interpreting classic works—their talents have taken them around the globe to perform masterpieces including Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. And their experience shows. The Star Press praises them for “their gracefulness, perfect edges, and lines” while the Washington Post declares the company to be “a cut above many of its rivals.”

State Theatre New Jersey

The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
