Why See New Jersey Ballet - Sleeping Beauty?
Brimming over with beauty, wonder and romance, Tchaikovsky's glittering adaptation of the cherished fairytale is a sumptuous treat for all ages. As Princess Aurora heads to her 100-year slumber, glorious choreography, stunning sets and spectacular costumes combine under a lush score to make this an unforgettable night at the ballet. Including a cast of fairies and beloved characters including Puss in Boots and Red Riding Hood, don't miss your chance to delight the whole family!
You are feeling sleepy
On the day of her grand christening, the Princess Aurora is admired by all in the kingdom, including a cast of fairies, ready to imbue her with the virtues she'll need in life. But one fairy is left off the guest list - the evil fairy! Furious, she bursts into the hall and curses baby Aurora, wishing her to die upon her 16th birthday, after pricking her finger on a spinning wheel. But all is not lost, the strong Lilac fairy, while not able to undo the curse, can adapt it, and instead Aurora will sleep...for 100 years...
When the time comes, the Lilac fairy bewitches the whole realm into sleep, joining Aurora in her sentence, as vines and trees grow up around the palace, hiding it from view. Finally, Aurora's saviour, Prince Desire arrives and plants on her true love's kiss, waking the Princess and kingdom just in time for a jubilant and triumphant wedding ceremony!
