Ballet on the Big Screen Sleeping Beauty At The Enzian Theater

Ballet on the Big Screen:
SLEEPING BEAUTY

SATURDAY AT 11AM

Described by Rudolf Nureyev as the “ballet of ballets,” “Sleeping Beauty” remains one of the jewels in the heritage of dance. In its splendid fantasy, dream and reality overlap, and the forces of Good and Evil battle for the fate of two innocents. Rudolf Nureyev restaged the work in 1989 for the Paris Opera Ballet, devising a choreography of dazzling academic virtuosity. Alternating between lavish ensembles and pas de deux “Sleeping Beauty” includes the famous Rose Adagio, one of the most challenging sequences in all of ballet. With sumptuous sets and costumes by Ezio Frigerio and Franca Squarciapino, this production of “Sleeping Beauty” is one of the most outstandingly accomplished masterpieces in the classical repertoire.
