Sleeping Beauty

Don't miss the world's favorite masterpiece of classical ballet, Sleeping Beauty! The internationally acclaimed State Ballet Theatre of Ukraine returns to North America and Canada in the 2022/23 season for the sparkling performances.

The evil fairy Carabosse curses Princess Aurora to 100 years of sleep with a single-finger prick on her 16th birthday. Doomed by fate, only a sweet kiss from the prince can break the spell and wake up the sleeping beauty. The fascinating tale comes to life in Andrey Litvinov's exquisite production, "a master class in classical style" (The Guardian), with "some of the most delightful steps in the 19th-century repertoire". This superb classical production features Tchaikovsky's delightful music, visually stunning lavish sets and elaborate costumes by Konstantin Pinchuk. A magical experience the entire family will love, filled with spectacular sets and enchanting choreography. Create unforgettable memories with friends and family - make it your cherished holiday tradition!
