'Our company is based on the classical traditions of ballet art' says Anatoly Emelianov
BALLET ENTHUSIASTS are in for a treat this weekend when The Royal Moscow Ballet gives two performances of Sleeping Beauty at the Town Hall Theatre, on Sunday March 4 at 2pm and 8pm.
Featuring the beloved music of Tchaikovsky, and with choreography by Marius Petipa, Lev Ivanov, and Anatoly Emelianov, this promises to be a captivating and magical production of one of the great classics of world ballet.
The ballet is based on the timeless fairytale, best known in the versions by Charles Perrault and Brothers Grimm. In a glorious kingdom, the Queen gives birth to beautiful Princess Aurora. Everyone in is invited to the christening - apart from the evil fairy Carabosse. Carabosse is so angry at being snubbed she places a curse on the Princess that, on her 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die. The beautiful Lilac Fairy alters the curse so Aurora will not die, but will fall asleep for 100 years, only to be awoken by true love's kiss.
