One of classical ballet's most beautiful works.

Why See San Francisco Ballet - The Sleeping Beauty?

a beloved classic

Welcome to the glittering world of The Sleeping Beauty, one of the San Francisco Ballet's most astounding and beautiful productions, replete with lush tutus, floral inspired vignettes, and spectacular sets, the story of the dozing Princess waiting for her true love's kiss has never been such a feast for the eyes and ears.

Set to an elegant score by Tchaikovsky, this production was created in 1990 as part of the company's centennial celebrations. Ballet master Marcus Pepita's steps provide the origins for Helgi Tomasson's dainty choreography that reveals the virtuosity of the dancers. Uplifting, dazzling and unashamedly romantic, The Sleeping Beauty is a great entryway into the world of classical ballet.

YOU ARE FEELING SLEEPY: THE STORY OF SLEEPING BEAUTY.

On the day of her grand christening, the Princess Aurora is admired by all in the kingdom, including a cast of fairies, ready to imbue her with the virtues she'll need in life. But one fairy is left off the guest list- the evil fairy! Furious, she bursts into the hall and curses baby Aurora, wishing her to die upon her 16th birthday, after pricking her finger on a spinning wheel. But all is not lost, the strong Lilac fairy, while not able to undo the curse, can adapt it, and instead Aurora will sleep...for 100 years...

When the time comes, the Lilac fairy bewitches the whole realm into sleep, joining Aurora in her sentence, as vines and trees grow up around the palace, hiding it from view. Finally, Aurora's saviour, Prince Charming arrives and plants on her true love's kiss, waking the Princess and kingdom just in time for a jubilant and triumphant wedding ceremony!
