One of the world’s oldest fairytales will get a ballet twist when Ballet Arizona brings The Sleeping Beauty to Symphony Hall Oct. 25-28, with accompaniment from The Phoenix Symphony.
The stage comes to life with fairies, princes and nymphs, gleaming with vivid color and storybook charm. The Sleeping Beauty blossoms like a rose, drawing you into a world of romance, wonder and grandeur. This celebrated classic, set to the Phoenix Symphony’s live performance of Tchaikovsky’s iconic score, will sweep you off of your feet leaving you spellbound from true love’s kiss.
Choreographed by Marius Petipa with additional choreography by heralded Ballet Arizona Artistic Director, Ib Andersen, The Sleeping Beauty is a mesmerizing treat with stunning costumes and dazzling sets that transport the audience to a magical kingdom.
