Sleeping Beauty

Ballet Spartanburg 200 East Saint John Street Spartanburg, SC, 29306 [ Map ]

This enchanting story is about Princess Aurora who is bewitched by the evil Carabosse. The Lilac Fairy intercedes the evil spell and places all in the kingdom into a deep and protective sleep. The spell is finally broken by a kiss from a noble Prince. This ballet is underscored by Tchaikovsky's brilliant and fluid paced music. Artistic director Carlos Agudelo's breathtaking direction of new choreography, celebrates the triumph of good over evil and, of course, the power of a kiss.
