Highly acclaimed European Ballet presents the classic and most enchanting ballet The Sleeping Beauty at Mullingar Arts Centre on Wednesday May 23 at 7.30pm.
Under the direction of Stanislav Tchassov, former principal dancer of 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, enhanced by over 45 beautiful handcrafted costumes, the ballet is ideal for audiences of all ages.
Highly respected, award-winning dancers from Russia, France, Italy, Germany, Bulgaria, Spain, and the 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 100 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.
