For the last few years, I have had the honor of partnering with Colorado Ballet to share upcoming news and events. This year I am one of the exclusive partners and I am so excited to bring you tons of information about upcoming shows including the season opener, Sleeping Beauty!
Sleeping Beauty Opens Colorado Ballet’s Season!
After checking out Romeo and Juliet earlier this year, I was ready for the next season. This year Sleeping Beauty is the opening show for Colorado Ballet’s 2018/2019 season. It will run from October 5-14 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House and feature choreography by Marius Petipa and music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Music will be performed LIVE by Colorado Ballet Orchestra which is astounding.
Sleeping Beauty premiered in 1890 and remains one of the most performed and beloved ballets today. A collaboration between legendary choreographer Marius Petipa and composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Sleeping Beauty is based on Charles Perrault’s La Belle au bois dormant and was first performed at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia.
This classic fairy-tale tells the story of the beautiful princess Aurora, who falls under the spell of a wicked fairy on her 16th birthday. Under the curse of this spell, the princess and entire village fall into 100 years of sleep. Only the kiss of true love can awaken the princess and break the spell. With the help of the Lilac Fairy, Prince Desirée must find his way to the sleeping princess in order to save his newfound love. Joy and a celebratory wedding ensue after the fateful kiss.
