The Sleeping Beauty
Donâ??t miss Marius Petipaâ??s enchanting ballet as a wicked fairy places a fatal curse on the baby Princess Aurora and only a princeâ??s kiss can break the spell.
Fathom Events, Mr. Wolf, Arts Alliance Media and the Royal Opera House invite you to journey to an enchanted world of princesses, fairy godmothers and magic spells with Tchaikovskyâ??s The Sleeping Beauty as it comes to the big screen in a special one-night event on Thursday, March 20 at 7:00pm (local time) to cinemas nationwide. Donâ??t miss Marius Petipaâ??s enchanting ballet as a wicked fairy places a fatal curse on the baby Princess Aurora and only a princeâ??s kiss can break the spell. Marius Petipaâ??s classic 19th-century choreography is combined with newly created sections by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon. First staged in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty is the pinnacle of classical ballet: a perfect marriage of Petipaâ??s choreography and Tchaikovskyâ??s music. Todayâ??s The Sleeping Beauty not only captures the mood of the original but shows that this is very much a living work for The Royal Ballet, growing and changing with the Company while celebrating its past.
