02 THE SLEEP­ING BEAUTY, AUS­TRALIAN BAL­LET

The Australian - Wish Magazine - - W -

Mel­bourne, Septem­ber 15-26; Perth, Oc­to­ber, 7-10; Syd­ney, Novem­ber 27-De­cem­ber 16 A beau­ti­ful young princess is cursed by a malev­o­lent fairy to sleep for 100 years, and is awak­ened by the kiss of a charm­ing prince. This ver­sion of the 700-year-old fairy tale (con­sid­er­ably darker in the orig­i­nal) inspired a truly en­chant­ing score from Tchaikovsky. A brand new pro­duc­tion of the beloved bal­let has its world pre­miere this month, di­rected by AB artis­tic di­rec­tor David McAl­lis­ter, who has added to Mar­ius Petipa’s clas­sic chore­og­ra­phy. Sets and cos­tumes are by Gabriela Tylesova ( Love Never Dies).
