Canada’s esteemed ballet company returns to showcase its world-renowned talents in both the classical and contemporary realms.
Of all the story ballets, perhaps none embodies classical ballet’s unabashed exuberance, grace, and virtuosity more than this romantic tale of a princess cursed to sleep for 100 years, who can only be awakened by a prince’s kiss.
A colorful pageant danced to Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous music, this production helped put The National Ballet of Canada on the international map when Nureyev brought it to the company in 1972 and chose current Artistic Director Karen Kain—then a principal dancer—for the title role.
She has staged the production keeping Nureyev’s vision intact; his is considered one of the most richly entertaining and technically impressive versions there is.
