The opening night audience was so gripped by this ballet, long as it is (run time with one intermission is two hours and 45 minutes) that I heard no fidgeting, no coughing, and saw no squirming by the children who were up way past their bedtimes
Fall into an enchanted marriage of fairytale and dance during the return of Oregon Ballet's The Sleeping Beauty, last seen on the Keller Auditorium stage in 2010. Featuring choreography by the company's former artistic director Christopher Stowell (modelled on Marius Petipa's own 1890 high art movements), as well as sweeping set designs, lavish costumes and a large ensemble cast of dancers, this is classical ballet at its very finest.
Set to Tchaikovsky's spine-tingling score, the beloved story opens on the christening of Princess Aurora. As the fairies bestow their gifts upon her, Carabosse, an evil fairy who did not receive an invite to the celebrations, enters and places a curse on the new born babe. The curse foretells the death of the princess on her 16th birthday after pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel.
Luckily, a kind hearted fairy who had not yet blessed the young monarch softens the spell, and although the king and queen do everything in their power to destroy all spinning wheels and keep their daughter safe, she still pricks her finger but falls into a deep, thousand year sleep instead. Only her true love's kiss could break her supernatural slumber...
Opening night: 15 February 2020
