Are you ready to be amazed and delighted by the grace and beauty of ballet? The Gesa Power House Theatre will be screening the Royal Ballet production of “The Sleeping Beauty” this Wednesday, April 12 at 6pm. This screening runs about 3 hours and includes 2 intermissions and a 15-minute introduction.
Here’s an excerpt from the Power House’s website describing the history of The Sleeping Beauty and Royal Ballet:
“Celebrate 70 years of The Royal Ballet’s landmark production and enter an enchanted world of princesses, fairy godmothers and magical spells. A perennial delight and a much-loved classic, The Royal Ballet’s The Sleeping Beauty combines the best of classical ballet, with all its charms and virtuosity, splendid music and talented dancers.
First choreographed to Tchaikovsky’s great musical score by Marius Petipa in Russia in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty has wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adage as Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess. The Royal Ballet’s landmark staging was revived for the Company’s 75th anniversary celebrations in 2006.
The designs by Oliver Messell, one of the greatest stage designers of the 20th century, were restored and updated for this production by Peter Farmer. The rich evocations of the baroque opulence of a royal court, the panoramic journey of the prince to the overgrown castle and the colorful characters in this famous fairy tale make this Sleeping Beauty a spectacle like no other.”
General admission tickets are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
