Sleeping Beauty

The Princess Aurora falls  under the curse of the Evil Fairy Carabosse on her sixteenth birthday, falling  into a deep slumber of one hundred years. Only the kiss of a prince could break the spell. A resplendent fairy tale ballet performed by the Bolshoi, The Sleeping Beauty features  scores of magical characters including fairies, the Little Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots, and a beautiful young Princess Aurora performed by Olga Smirnova, a “truly extraordinary talent” (The Telegraph). This is classical ballet at its finest.
