Description

A feast for the senses, this enchanting story ballet set to one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous scores, unites fantasy, sorcery, and romance with classical ballet in all its grandeur. Featuring stunning scenery and costumes, this sparkling tale of Princess Aurora, her prince, the evil Carabosse, and a whole storybook full of characters, is a delight for all to enjoy.

“In the third act, even though Princess Aurora has been sleeping for 100 years, I don't know that she is necessarily more mature... she's still very much a young girl, but she has fallen in love, so her dancing now has a serenity and calmness. ”
–Helgi Tomasson, artistic director and choreographer
