Festival Ballet Theatre: The Sleeping Beauty

Celebrate spring with a full-length production of the beloved classical ballet, The Sleeping Beauty. Festival Ballet Theatre's heart-warming production of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece brings to life fabled storybook favorites, Princess Aurora, Puss'n Boots, Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf…characters that remind us that good always triumphs over evil.

This production is set to the music of Peter Tchaikovsky with choreography by Artistic Director Salwa Rizkalla after Marius Petipa. The Sleeping Beauty was first performed by the Russian Imperial Ballet in January 1890. 

This timeless love story will feature special guests from prestigious professional ballet companies in the lead roles.
