THE SLEEPING BEAUTY
“Highly entertaining!” – The Salt Lake Tribune
“Dramatic stunts abound!” – Deseret News
The beloved fairy tale, adored by Utah audiences for decades, gets an opulent makeover with the premiere of sumptuous new sets designed by critically acclaimed French artist and painter Alain Vaes. In 2011, Ballet West Artistic Director Adam Sklute and Resident Designer David Heuvel reconceived the costumes. Now Ballet West unveils the first new sets created for this work since its BW premiere in 1986.
From birth, Aurora is beset by trials—a jealous witch, cursed spindles, pernicious brambles and thorns—and the only chance for redemption for her and her kingdom is true love’s kiss. The fairy of wisdom, a loving godmother, sets out to ensure Aurora’s happiness and the kingdom’s triumph, celebrated with a wedding attended by the most fanciful fairy tale characters ever to grace the stage. Adam Sklute’s unique adaptation of the spectacular Marius Petipa ballet set to Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable score is an evening of nonstop, fanciful adventure.
