Ballet Ariel kicks off our silver anniversary, 25th season with “Aurora’s Wedding,” the third act of “Sleeping Beauty” staged by Oleg Dedogryuk and Patricia Renzetti. The ballet is set to music composed by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, completed in 1889 with choreography by Marius Petipa. In this joyful act, familiar fairy tale favorites assemble for the wedding of Princess Aurora and Prince Désiré, including Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, the Bluebird and Princess Florine, and Puss in Boots and the Cat. After the guests have paid their respects to the couple, Aurora and Désiré dance a grand pas de deux (for two dancers) before being joined by their guests as the kingdom rejoices.
The production, performed in one act and without intermission, presents a rare and delightful opportunity for fans of all ages to see beloved fairy tale characters together in one place. A Tea Party after each of the matinee performances, complete with savory and sweet treats, is a wonderful chance to meet the costumed dancers and take pictures with them!
