Did you know…
  • Adapted from the beloved fairy tale, The Sleeping Beauty was the second collaboration between composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovski and choreographer Marius Petipa, who is regarded as one of the most influential ballet masters of all time. The two collaborated on other classics such as The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.
  • Princess Aurora is one of classical ballet’s most challenging roles! The famous Rose Adagio of Act I is a true test of a ballerina’s technique and stamina, for she must balance unsupported en pointe while taking each of the four suitors by the hand.
