The libretto written by I. Vsevolozhsky and Marius Petipa after Charles Perrault's fairy tale has brilliantly fit into the staging concept of the Kremlin Ballet Theater and taken the central place in it.
The ballet premiered at the Mariinsky Theater of St. Petersburg back in 1890. It was an unsurpassed success with the audience and received overly enthusiastic feedback.
A number of composers resorted to the fascinating and mysterious fairy tale by Charles Perrault, but it was only the brilliant Russian classic Tchaikovsky, who managed to perfectly convey its vibe, essence and message in the music language.
The incredibly romantic and at the same time tragic story of "The Sleeping Beauty" is familiar to everyone from childhood.
In the production by the famous and talented choreographer Andrey Petrov, the ballet about the confrontation of good and evil, love and hatred, envy and salvation, acquires a new interpretation, which however keeps the main scenes once staged by renowned master Marius Petipa. Touching variations, heartfelt duets and ensemble scenes are permeated with classical ballet elements. At the same time, there is a zest of modern innovations relating to choreography in this version of The Sleeping Beauty.
Pure and transparent images of the main characters, expressed through the high art of dance, emphasize the close connection with the primary version, but are not devoid of explicit modern elements. Surprisingly graceful and plastic movements of dancers on stage in conjunction with melodious and refined music can best convey the characters and moods of the numerous characters: the fairies of sincerity, flowering plants, chirping canaries, fervent passions, lilacs, and what not. Their unearthly beauty is emphasized with dazzling colorful costumes, combined with magical stage design and fabulous musical accompaniment performed by a symphony orchestra.
The enchanting Sleeping Beauty ballet is ideal for a family get-together and is sure to give you excellent mood and positive emotions.
Do not miss the unique chance to visit an unsurpassed fairytale production, filled with an inspired and mysterious atmosphere of wellbeing and happiness.
