The traditional staging of Sleeping Beauty has an international history. Based on a French fairytale, it was first staged in St. Petersburg in 1890 with the celebrated Tchaikovsky score. Its choreographer, Marius Petipa, brought the refinement of the French style to the grand spectacle of the Russian stage. Since then, it has been performed by ballet companies all over the world.

Ballet Theatre of Maryland’s rendition will honor this tradition and its most iconic moments. In the prologue, this includes the gifts of the fairies at Aurora’s christening. As each fairy bestows the baby princess with a different virtue, they personify their gift in the dance they perform. At Aurora’s 16th birthday, four suitors vie for the princess’s hand in marriage in a pas de cinq (dance for five) known as the Rose Adagio. In the final act of the ballet, fairytale characters such as Puss in Boots and Little Red Riding Hood famously dance as guests at Aurora and Florimund’s wedding.
