Sleeping Beauty

Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier September 11 and 12, 2020

Based on the government’s directives, Place des Arts has suspended all its shows and other public activities through April 13. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, some shows scheduled after that date must also be postponed or cancelled. As a result, the Sleeping Beauty performances scheduled from June 2 to 7 has been postponed. These measures have been put into effect due to circumstances relating to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic which are beyond our control. We ask that you keep your ticket(s), which will be honoured at the venue entrance.

FOR A KISS

The story of the slumbering princess goes back several centuries and went through numerous versions before Perrault was inspired by an Italian tale to write what would become the Sleeping Beauty that we know today. The day of her christening, an infant princess receives a curse from the fairy Carabosse, whom   no one invited to the fete; the fairy wishes for Aurora to prick her finger and die on the day of her 16th birthday. Fortunately, another fairy succeeds in easing the princess’ plight by having her fall instead into a deep sleep of 100 years. Only     true love’s kiss will awaken her.

On Tchaikovsky’s magnificent music, Les Grands Ballets visit Marius Petipa’s classical ballet. While a rotating cast of characters unfold the story we all know, the Manichaean conflict between Good, the Lilac Fairy, and Evil, Carabosse, persists until the very end.
