The Sleeping Beauty with the PBT Orchestra runs Mother’s Day weekend, May 10-12, at the Benedum Center.
The Sleeping Beauty ranks among the great story ballets — a tour de force of classical choreography and fairy-tale charm driven by a magnificent Tchaikovsky score. The tale comes to life with storybook scenery, glittering costumes and pristine choreography, which many consider the gold standard for classical technique. Audiences of all ages will revel in a suite of delightful dances by Princess Aurora and Prince Desire, six fairies, and storybook characters like Puss ‘n Boots, White Cat and the Bluebirds.
