Sleeping Beauty - Moscow Ballet La Classique

Moscow Ballet La Classique return with the ballet’s most loved fairytale, Sleeping Beauty.

La Classique was founded in 1990 by its current Director, Elik Melikov. With its artistic ballet mastery, lavish costumes and magnificent stage sets, the illustrious La Classique will take us on a mystical journey to the fairytale world of Princess Aurora, the Sleeping Beauty.

Once upon a time, a distant kingdom celebrated the birth of a beautiful princess who they named Aurora. The evil fairy Carabosse cast a spell on the Princess, meaning she will die from a needle prick and on her 16th birthday pricks her finger on a needle hidden in a bouquet of flowers presented to her by the disguised Carabosse. She falls into a deep sleep, saddening the whole kingdom. Prince Deserea encounters Princess Aurora the sleeping beauty and kisses her gently back to life, and the whole kingdom joins in the celebration of their wedding.

Moscow Ballet La Classique invites the whole family to an evening of spectacular ballet, bringing to life Tchaikovsky's stunning score. Presented in two acts, La Classique captures the imagination, passion and the magic of the fairytale. A hugely enjoyable dance spectacular for ballet lovers of all ages!

The Set and backdrop were breathtaking and intricate, dazzling costumes only added to the magic of the fairytale storyWaikato Times
