The American Ballet Theatre's Gillian Murphy and Marcelo Gomes take to the stage with the Festival Ballet Theatre's company of professional dancers in this full-length production of Tchaikovsky's classical ballet Sleeping Beauty. In this beloved fable, the infant Princess Aurora is cursed at her christening to prick her finger on a spindle on her 16th birthday and fall into a deep, hundred-year sleep until a handsome prince awakens her with a kiss. First performed by the Russian Imperial Ballet in 1890, Sleeping Beauty is a heartwarming ballet classic with a joyous fairy tale ending.
