Music by Tchaikovsky
The classic fairy tale set to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score, stunning choreography and beautiful costumes combine to portray the struggle between good and evil.
The wicked fairy Carabosse lays a curse on Princess Aurora, proclaiming that she will one day pierce her finger - and die. But the Lilac Fairy intervenes, and on the fateful day the princess and the entire palace instead fall into a deep sleep. A century later, when Prince Florimund awakens the princess with a kiss, the palace awakes and a parade of fairytale characters attends the royal wedding.
