Ballet Clásico Internacional

The sleeping beauty

Directed by Andrey Sharaev and based in the Czech Republic, the company offers versions of the great classics with the spectacular scenography of Eugeny Gurenko and magnificent international soloists. This time the company performs Tchaikovsky's masterpiece: The Sleeping Beauty, based on Charles Perrault's fairy tale La belle au bois dormant, first performed as a ballet in St. Petersburg in 1890.

A new production by Tatiana Solovievaa directed by Andrey Sharaev in collaboration with the Royal Czech Ballet and the Balletto di Milano.


The wicked witch predicts that the Princess will prick herself and cause her death but Fairy Lila exchanges this curse for a sleep that will last a hundred years. One hundred years later, Princess Aurora wakes up with the kiss of Prince Desiré and defeats the curse. At the wedding, accompanied by the King and Queen, we will see Charles Perrault's most famous characters parade: Cinderella, the Prince, Puss in Boots and the Puss, Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, the Blue Bird and Princess Florina, Tom Thumb, and the main characters dance their famous Pax de deux.
