THE highly acclaimed European Ballet will bring ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ to Theatre at The Mill, Newtownabbey on Saturday, May 26.
Under the direction of Stanislav Tchassov, former principal dancer of The Bolshoi Ballet, this exciting and dynamic company of international 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 stunning sets and beautiful handcrafted costumes, the ballet is ideal for audiences of all ages.
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 fairytale characters gathered for the sparkling final wedding celebration.
Highly respected, award-winning dancers from Russia, Latvia, Estonia, France, Italy, Spain and UK will perform in this classic and enchanting production.
