The European Ballet will perform The Sleeping Beauty, a classical ballet in three acts, at the Simon Ryan Theatre, Tipperary Town on Sunday, May 27th at 7.30pm - music by Piotr Tchaikovsky, choreography Marius Petipa, staged and adapted by Stanislav Tchassov.
Under the direction of Stanislav Tchassov, former principal dancer with the Bolshoi Ballet, this exciting and dynamic company of international first-class dancers has endeared itself to audiences and critics alike for its commitment to excellent artistic standards and for the dedication and energy of its talented dancers. Set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score and enhanced by over forty-five beautiful hand-crafted costumes, the ballet is ideal for audiences of all ages.
Highly respected, award winning dancers from Russia, Latvia, Estonia, France, Italy, Spain and UK will perform in this beautiful production.
Based on Charles Perrault’s fairy story the ballet is about a beautiful princess bound by a wicked fairy’s spell to sleep for a hundred years.
She can only be woken by the kiss of a handsome prince.
The ballet is full of wonderful treasures: the Lilac Fairy, the Rose Adagio, the Bluebird and a cast of fairy-tale characters gathered for the sparkling final wedding celebration.
Colourful sets, lavish costumes and a magnificent score of Tchaikovsky make this beautiful ballet a favourite for all ages.
