Vienna Festival Ballet (est 1980) presents SLEEPING BEAUTY
Classical ballet takes centre stage soon when the highly acclaimed Vienna Festival Ballet Company returns to town with their original production of the timeless fairy-tale Sleeping Beauty.
This breathtaking ballet for all ages is set in the magical world of a fairy kingdom where the King and Queen are celebrating the birth of their daughter, Princess Aurora. The lilac fairy and her attendants have been invited to the Christening but the wicked fairy, Carabosse has been forgotten. Angered by this, Carabosse casts a spell on Aurora that on her sixteenth birthday she will prick her finger and die. The lilac fairy changes the spell so that Aurora will not die but will fall asleep for 100 years until a handsome Prince will awaken her with a kiss.
This magical ballet is set to be a wonderful evening for the whole family. Following the traditional tale of Sleeping Beauty and with a musical score by Tchaikovsky, this ballet is sure to enthrall audiences of all ages.
