The Gelsey Kirkland Ballet proudly presents Sleeping Beauty, one of the most beloved and famous ballets in the classical repertoire.
With choreography by Marius Petipa and music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, this enchanting fairy tale ballet was first performed in 1890 at the Marinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. It is a true masterpiece and the epitome of dramatic storytelling in the classical tradition.
With lavish sets and costumes, GKB’s staging of the full-length production explores all the well-known highlights of this ballet: the opulence of the royal court, the fairies’ magical realm, the haunting vision scene, the Prince’s boat journey through the thorny forest, and the miraculous kiss that awakens Princess Aurora from the curse of her century-long sleep. The heart of the drama is played out as the conflict between the forces of good (the Lilac Fairy) and evil (Carabosse), and the triumph of a noble love that survives not only 100 years, but for all eternity. The ballet is indeed a timeless love story and a glorious spectacle, which our young company celebrates with joyous dancing, as well as an engaging display of acting talent.
The evening promises to be a memorable delight for the entire family, children and parents alike. This is truly a special production that ballet lovers will not want to miss. Don’t believe us? Check out this sneak peek video.

"Take these next four years to change your mind over and over again, learn about yourself, figure out your priorities, and absorb as much knowledge as you can," says graduating senior Jaclyn Griffith. "And please eat plenty of Rosella's Pizza in my honor."
