The Sleeping Beauty

February 15–18, 2024 | Steinmetz Hall | 2 p.m. & 7:30 p.m.

One kiss — that’s all it took to awaken Princess Aurora from her century-long slumber and to meet her handsome Prince Desire. The Sleeping Beauty is timeless and cherished, which is why choreographer Christopher Stowell chose to retell through dance one of the world’s favorite fairy tales. Stowell’s choreography has a human touch that ushers the audience to a happy ending after its journey through good versus evil and love conquering over revenge. Stowell’s dance is calibrated precisely with the lush and sweeping music composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

But no one should be fooled by the ballet’s gentle title – The Sleeping Beauty is known for its challenging choreography as exemplified by the famous and difficult Rose Adagio, when on her 16th birthday, Princess Aurora slowly and gracefully dances among four suitors, creating one of the ballet’s most anticipated, and yes, iconic moments.

Stowell, the son of professional ballet dancers blends his experience, knowledge, tradition, and grace to make this story undeniably feel new and fresh each and every time.
