Mobile Ballet will present The Sleeping Beauty March 23-24 at the Mobile Civic Center Theater, with performances on Saturday, March 23, at 7:00pm, and Sunday, March 24, at 2:00pm. Both performances will feature the Mobile Ballet Orchestra playing the iconic score live, led by conductor David Ott.
Tchaikovsky’s glorious score and a cast of fantastical characters will captivate audiences, in this new adaptation by Katia Garza after the original by Marius Petipa. In this full-length ballet, the malevolent fairy Carabosse curses Princess Aurora to 100 years of slumber by a single prick of her finger on her 16th birthday. Doomed by fate, only a prince's loving kiss can break the evil spell and awaken the sleeping beauty. Mobile Ballet’s Sleeping Beauty will transport you on a mystical journey in this timeless story where good versus evil and the power of love overcomes all obstacles.
This enchanting ballet is a masterclass in the classical style, ideal for lifelong ballet lovers as well as newcomers. Outstanding guest artists will join the Mobile Ballet Company onstage, including principal dancer Nayara Lopes of Philadelphia Ballet as Princess Aurora, Daniel Benavides as Carabosse, and more.
Come experience classical ballet at its finest!
