From the opening scene the control and elegance of the corps de ballet is a wonder to behold, each scene carefully choreographed and beautifully realised by the talented company.

Returning to the Quick by popular demand, the esteemed Russian National Ballet Theater will perform The Sleeping Beauty, often considered the finest achievement of the Classical ballet.

Choreographed by Marius Petipa, Tchaikovsky’s beloved classic is a captivating fantasy story filled with magic and splendor for the entire family. The story follows a baby princess condemned by an evil fairy to die on her 16th birthday. Saved by the gift of the good Lilac Fairy who declares the princess will only sleep until awakened by the kiss of a prince, the fairy tale is replete with a king and queen, fairies both good and evil, a beautiful princess and dream prince, magical stage effects, and courtly splendor.

The Russian National Ballet has been bringing timeless ballet classics to the stages of North America since 1999. Founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, the company used their new-found creative freedom, influenced by the political movement, to invigorate the tradition of Russian Ballet with new developments in dance from around the world.
