TCHAIKOVSKY Sleeping Beauty

KAREN RUSSO BURKE choreogrpaher

The classic story of Sleeping Beauty was first performed as a ballet in Russia in 1890, with music from the famed composer Peter 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. Dayton Ballet Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke presents her own magical vision of this story, influenced by the artwork of Gustav Klimt. The Replay stream is a multimedia presentation blending still photographs and video clips of the Ballet’s production to the Orchestra’s musical accompaniment.
