Following their 2011 sell out performance of A Festival of Russian Ballet, the Imperial Russian Ballet Company return to Australia with their presentation of the classic masterpiece “Sleeping Beauty” in three acts. The Imperial Russian Ballet Company combines the unity and integrity of the great Russian ballet schools where traditions are passed on from one generation to another. Sleeping Beauty follows the story of Princess Aurora. During her christening, the King fails to invite the bad fairy Carabosse who then casts a spell on the Princess that will mean she will die from a needle prick at the age of 16. The King tries to protect his daughter by banning all needles but Princess Aurora pricks her finger on her sixteenth birthday. Act 2 is set 100 years later, when a handsome prince stubbles upon the Sleeping Beauty, Princess Aurora. She is awoken from her sleep and witchcraft is defeated, while the Princess and Prince are married.
