Under the Artistic Direction of Stanislav Ivanov the beauty awakes in Tampa on April 30, 2016. The timeless tale of the beautiful Princess Aurora put under the spell of the evil sorceress Carabosse is sure to enchant audience members of all ages. The cast of fanciful characters will captivate and delight as the fairies happily grant gifts of honesty, grace, prosperity, song and generosity.
First presented in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty remains the best example of narrative ballet theatre. The ballet’s creators – composer Peter Tchaikovsky and choreographer Marius Petipa – transformed Charles Perrault’s literary fairy tale bringing to life the romantic legend of the spellbound Princess Aurora. Watching this enchanting story ballet, it’s easy to believe in the magic that allows spells to be broken, good to triumph over evil, and a charming prince to rescue his beautiful princess. The adventure comes to a magnificent close in the wedding celebration of true love attended by notable fairy tale characters such as the White Cat, Puss N’ Boots, Little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf, Tom Thumb, Cinderella and her Prince.
Tampa Bay Triple Threat Theatre and The Classical Ballet of Tampa will present the full production of THE SLEEPING BEAUTY at The University of South Florida Theatre One on April 30, 2016 at 2:00 pm & 7:00 pm.
