Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography after Marius Petipa
Nevada Ballet Theatre’s 45th Season opens with A Smith Center Premiere, the full-length production of The Sleeping Beauty. A vengeful fairy, a beautiful princess and a delicate pierce of her finger lead to a 100 year slumber for an entire kingdom, breakable only by the kiss of a handsome prince. Set to a lyrical score by Tchaikovsky, a bounty of ethereal fairies and courtly splendor fills this enchanted land. As the power of true love’s kiss triumphs, characters from across the land arrive to celebrate, each with a joyful dance worthy of this happy ending. The Sleeping Beauty is a fairy tale the entire family will enjoy.
Prior to both performances, NBT will present Insights, an educational pre-performance discussion offering patrons an opportunity to further engage with the ballet, with special guests, multi-media presentations and more. Insights is free to all ticket holders and will take place in the Troesh Studio Theater, adjacent to Reynolds Hall, 45 minutes prior to curtain at 6:45 pm on Saturday and 1:15 pm on Sunday.
