Sleeping Beauty: Pennsylvania Ballet Academy with Lancaster Symphony Orchestra
Sat. June 3, 2023 at 6:00 pm
- This is a rental presentation -
Nearly 10 years after Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake was first performed, the renowned composer was commissioned to write a ballet for the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg based on the 1697 Charles Perrault fairy tale, "The Sleeping Beauty in the Wood.” Set in the age of Louis XIV, Tchaikovsky put the story to music in the Baroque style, and his score was completed in September 1889. The ballet marked the first collaboration between the composer and his fellow Russian, famed choreographer Marius Petipa. Its theme so often borrowed over the years, Sleeping Beauty is the story of a cursed princess who can be saved only by true love.
The Academy once again teams with Lancaster Symphony Orchestra, and patrons of all ages are sure to relish this unique, excerpted performance behind a live orchestra. The evening also features Divertissement, with choreography from some of ballet’s most enduring classics, as interpreted by Academy Artistic Director Vanessa Zahorian and Creative Director Davit Karapetyan.
