My First Ballet: Sleeping Beauty
18 May, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
As a baby, Princess Aurora is cursed by Carabosse: on her 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die. Her godmother, the Lilac Fairy, alters the spell so Aurora will not die but will sleep for 100 years, only to be awoken by her true love.
From Aurora’s christening in the grand hall of the palace, to her jubilant wedding celebrations, the popular story comes alive on stage.
With a narrator to help the young audience follow the story, and a shortened version of Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous music, this is the perfect introduction to the beauty of ballet, and a fantastic family day out.
