The ballet will perform Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Sleeping Beauty” in Stafford on Friday, Oct. 7, at the Stafford Centre. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., with the show beginning at 7:30 p.m.
The Russian Grand Ballet brings the classic ballet to life with Russia’s brightest ballet stars to perform the full-length production. Tickets are available now and can be purchased at staffordcentre.ticketforce.com/ordertickets.asp?p=193.
The Russian Grand Ballet has established a reputation for talent and versatility by touring the world with both full-length traditional ballets and shorter “divertissements.” Its Ballet Master, Honored Artist of Russia, Vladimir Troshchenko, is highly dedicated to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet. The Honored artist of Ukraine Olga Kifyak will be dancing Princess Aurora, with The Honored Artist of Ukraine Eugeniy Svetlitsa as Prince Désiré for this 35-city U.S. tour.
“There’s a good reason why ‘Sleeping Beauty’ is so often called the ‘ballet of all ballets’ – the combination of pure romanticism, the story about love and deception and Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet music all continue to reach new generations of audiences,” said Troshchenko. “Staffords’s blooming art scene makes it the perfect location for the Russian Grand Ballet’s Sleeping Beauty performance.”
From young to old, many generations have waited for the moment of true love, when Sleeping Beauty opens her eyes, awakened by a kiss from her prince. The ballet is in three acts with two intermissions, with music by Tchaikovsky, choreography by Marius Petipa, revised by Vladimir Troshchenko, and libretto by Ivan Vsevolozhskiy and Marius Petipa. Running time is approximately two hours and 30 minutes.
