Vienna Festival Ballet returns to Swanage with their traditional, enchanting production of The Sleeping Beauty, a classic fairy tale set to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score, stunning choreography, beautiful costumes, all combine to portray the struggle between good and evil.
Incensed at being snubbed at the christening of Princess Aurora, the wicked fairy Carabosse lays a curse on the child, proclaiming that she will one day pierce her finger - and die. But the Lilac Fairy intervenes, and when the fateful day arrives, the princess and the entire palace instead fall into a deep sleep. A century later, Prince Florimund is guided to the castle by the Lilac Fairy, overcoming the obstacles created by Carabosse, and awakening the sleeping princess with a kiss. It is love at first sight, the palace awakes and a parade of fairytale characters attends the royal wedding. A gorgeous Tchaikovsky score, classic Petipa choreography, an enchanting fairytale.
Following the traditional tale of Sleeping Beauty, this ballet is sure to enchant audiences of all ages.
Founded in 1980 by the vastly experienced Austrian dancer and artistic director, Peter Mallek, Vienna Festival Ballet uses talented international dancers, giving a vitality, energy and freshness to every performance.
