Celebrate well over a century of Sleeping Beauty when the National Ballet of Ukraine visits the Dubai Opera this month. The ballet premiered in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1890. This performance features a musical score by the legendary Russian composer Tchaikovsky, played by a full live symphony orchestra.
In this timeless fairy tale, a young princess Aurora is cursed by an evil fairy, so that the simple prick of her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel will … Well, you probably know the story.
The richness of the 18th Century-like costuming of this 42-dancer traveling troupe add to the beauty and grandness of this performance. Prepare to be enchanted!
