TCHAIKOVSKY Sleeping Beauty

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor, presenter WEBSITE 
KAREN RUSSO BURKE choreographer

The classic story of Sleeping Beauty was first performed as a ballet in Russia in 1890, with music from the famed composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.  The story of the beautiful princess, her guardian fairies, the evil spell of the darkened slumber, and the magic kiss has been passed down through generations.  The lovely fairy tale has appeared on stage in so many different forms over the last 130 years, depending on the vision of the storyteller at hand.

This will be a full presentation of the famous ballet.

With an original libretto and choreography by Karen Russo Burke, unique costumes by well-known dance designer Christine Darch, amazing sets by Lewis Folden, and live music from the impeccable Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Artistic Director and Conductor Neal Gittleman, Sleeping Beauty: The Story of Briar Rose takes the stage by storm to steal your heart away
