About Sleeping Beauty - The Moscow City Ballet
Moscow City Ballet celebrates the classical Russian tradition in spectacular style.
The enchanting and romantic story of The Sleeping Beauty inspired Tchaikovsky to write some of his most glorious music, and the ballet has captivated audiences for well over a century. Featuring the delicate Princess Aurora, her gallant Prince, wicked Carabosse, the beautiful Lilac Fairy and a host of fairy-tale characters, this truly magical production showcases the company’s exquisite dramatic and lyrical talents.
Tchaikovsky is the undisputed Tsar of ballet; his sweeping scores have the power to transport audiences from delight to despair, especially when performed by a full orchestra. The new generation of principal dancers adds a a youthful exuberance to these renowned ballets.
The Sleeping Beauty appears as part of Moscow City Ballet’s Tchaikovsky Trilogy, alongside Swan Lake and The Nutcracker.
