In Act 3 of The Sleeping Beauty, the entire kingdom celebrates the wedding of Aurora and the Prince. In attendance are the Gold, Silver, and Ruby Jewel Fairies. Their dancing is a beautiful example of “pure” classical ballet – with clear lines, refined and elegant technique, and a lightness that absolutely sparkles on stage.
