“Sleeping Beauty” presented by the Interlochen Arts Academy Dance Co. and Orchestra
December 11-13 in Corson Auditorium
Find yourself captivated by brilliant choreography, colorful costumes, a magical Tchaikovsky score and more in a lavish production of “Sleeping Beauty” presented by the Interlochen Arts Academy Dance Company and Orchestra.
In the ballet, the infant princess Aurora is condemned at her christening by the wicked fairy Carabosse to prick her finger and die on her 16th birthday. But the good Lilac Fairy intervenes and declares that the princess will only sleep until awakened by the kiss of a prince.
On the eve of her 16th birthday, Aurora pricks her finger on a hidden tapestry needle and falls asleep. A hundred years later in a neighboring kingdom, the Lilac Fairy offers Prince Florimund a vision of the princess. Enchanted by her beauty, he travels to the castle where she lies asleep and plants the awakening kiss.
Danced in a prologue and two acts, “Sleeping Beauty” combines set dances with mimed scenes, technique with artistry, and is a can’t-miss for audiences of all ages this holiday season.
