About

The Bolshoi’s sumptuous staging with its luxurious sets and costumes gives life to Perrault’s fairy tale, THE SLEEPING BEAUTY, unlike any other. On her 16th birthday, the evil Carabosse casts a curse on the beautiful Princess Aurora, causing her to fall into a deep slumber for 100 years. Only the kiss of a prince could awaken her. In this resplendent and magical classic, the Bolshoi dancers take us on a dream-like journey through this classic fairytale complete with jewel fairies, a magical kingdom, a youthful princess and a handsome prince in this purest style of classical ballet. A must-see!
