Sleeping Beauty: Vienna Festival Ballet
A classic fairytale set to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score with stunning choreography and beautiful costumes combined to portray the struggle between good and evil.
The wicked Carbosse casts a spell on Princess Aurora proclaiming that she will one day prick her finger - and die. The Lilac Fairy changes the spell, and instead on the fateful day the Princess and the entire Palace fall into a deep sleep. A century later Prince Florimund revives the Princess with a kiss, the Palace awakes and a parade of fairytale characters attend the wedding.
Following the traditional tale of Sleeping Beauty, this ballet is sure to enchant audiences of all ages.
Founded in 1980 by the vastly experienced Austrian dancer and artistic director, Peter Mallek, Vienna Festival Ballet uses talented international dancers, giving a vitality, energy and freshness to every performance.
'An excellent company of talented young dancers. Their energy and enthusiasm is breathtaking'.
