To read

Alongside The Nutcracker and Swan Lake, the ballet of Sleeping Beauty is part of the mythical triptych imagined by the Frenchman Marius Petipa for the dancers of the St. Petersburg Ballet at the end of the 19th century based on Tchaikovsky's scores. Princess Aurora is under a curse from the Wicked Fairy Godmother: on her sixteenth birthday, she will be plunged into a deep sleep. Only one thing can awaken her: the kiss of a handsome prince... Adapted from Charles Perrault's tale, the ballet unfolds all its magic from beginning to end. This ballet from the Riga National Opera and Ballet follows Petipa's original structure, with the addition of some brief new sequences by the choreographer and director of the Ballet Aivars Leimanis. This Beauty is therefore an impressive show full of romanticism and grace and a brilliant demonstration of the high technicality of both the Stars and the corps de ballet. Also note that we will once again find in the pit the musicians of the Orchestre Hexagone who accompanied the Swan Lake performances last winter. A ballet best enjoyed with family or friends during the festive season that should entertain the young as well as the young at heart.
