The Sleeping Beauty, an enchanted world of castles and forests, curses and fairies; just the kiss of a sincere love will undo the spell - the consecration of romanticism.
Filled with romance and marked by lyricism, The Sleeping Beauty represents a great challenge for dancers, especially in the interpretation of the main character Princess Aurora, demanding a very pure academic style - elegant and fragile.
A great and irresistible classic production that represents an unforgettable and memorable moment.
