The Sleeping Beauty

Fotogallerie für The Sleeping Beauty  - Insgesamt 5 Fotos.

It's a story we all know from our childhood. The good fairies arrive at Princess Aurora's christening, bringing good wishes and wonderful gifts. Just as the Lilac Fairy is about to present her gift, the wicked fairy Carabosse appears and utters a terrible curse … Central to the plot is the hundred-year sleep of Aurora, symbolising the transition from childhood to adulthood. Marius Petipa's »The Sleeping Beauty« with its wealth of choreographic dance highlights represents the very summit of classical ballet. The enduring success of this masterpiece is due in no small measure to the brilliant musical score by Peter Tchaikovsky.
