Best family entertainment for ages 4 and up!
Cursed by a wicked fairy, the newborn Princess Aurora is fated to die from a prick to her finger on her sixteenth birthday. A good fairy intervenes to alter the wicked fairy’s tragic spell: instead of dying, Princess Aurora, and her entire kingdom, will fall into a deep sleep. Only true love’s kiss will unleash the power to awaken her and the rest of her kingdom.
This pinnacle of classical dance is heralded as ballet’s most sumptuous and artistically exacting masterpiece.
Both the regal visual splendor and Tchaikovsky’s monumental score will enchant the entire family.
