Sleeping Beauty As You've Never Experienced It Before
Following a hotly anticipated premiere in Miami in early December, the enchanting modern take on a classic 'Sleeping Beauty Dreams' comes to New York's historic Beacon Theatre for a strictly limited two-night run. From the minds of choreographer Edward Clug, Dutch digital composers Noisia, Italian technology artist Carlo Ratti, Dutch costume designer Bart Hess, and lighting designers Tobias Gremmler and Laurent Fort, the contemporary update of the age-old folk tale stars Mariinsky Ballet superstar Diana Vishneva as Princess Aurora and Tony nominated dancer Desmond Richardson as Prince Peter.
Fusing art, music, dance and dazzling cutting-edge technology, the exciting new production centers on an unexplored corner of the fairy story, using imagery and light to conjure up the dreams Aurora experiences during her 100 years of slumber. Alongside this twist in the tale, the performance will meld contemporary dance with 3D digital avatars that are digitally projected on the stage in real time, replicating the dancer's movement.
