Fri-Sat, May 4-5, 2018 | THE SLEEPING BEAUTY, presented by CU Ballet

Considered Tchaikovsky's ballet masterpiece, this fairytale story follows Princess Aurora who is cast into a hundred-year sleep by the spell of the evil fairy Carabosse, and, through the enchantments of the Lilac Fairy, is awakened by the bearer of true love's first kiss—the charming Prince Desire.

CU Ballet's production features its most elaborate costuming yet with over 160 costumes designed in the style of King Louis XIV. All performances include the full ballet.
