The Sleeping Beauty
The most magical of all the fairy tale ballets! A beautiful princess, an evil fairy, a curse that dooms everyone to sleep for a hundred years, and a magical kiss—what more can you ask? The Bluebird, Puss-in-Boots, the White Cat, Red Riding Hood, the Wolf, and vibrant and colorful fairies, are among the many guests invited to Aurora’s extravagant wedding that concludes this family favorite. Come experience the enchantment and majesty of this time-honored classic set to some of the most beautiful music ever written for the ballet. Tchaikovsky’s very first ballet score—full of soaring melodies and sparkling variations—is performed live by the Butler Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Richard Auldon Clark. Indulge yourself in the fantasy of dreams that come true.
