The internationally-acclaimed Moscow Festival Ballet makes a triumphant return after its sold-out performance of Swan Lake in 2013 with the grand spectacle Sleeping Beauty, the classic tale of a beautiful princess, a sinister witch and the transformative power of true love's kiss. Under the artistic direction of Sergei Radchenko -- the legendary principal dancer of the famed Bolshoi Ballet -- this sparkling production boasts 50 of Russia's most talented dancers along with stunning sets and costumes, all set to the triumphant score by Tchaikovsky.

I think the right words for it are charming and whimsical. I liked it. I was entertained by it at times but not amazed by it. I didn't love it. Its definitely got a great old timey feel to it but it failed to achieve that magical quality I had expected from the billing. Partly this might be due to the fact that the seats I ended up with were basically a few rows from the very back so that didn't help :)

It was the most beautiful surrealistic and poetic performance I have seen in a long time. A theater as it would have been done by Rene Magritte. Aurelia is a female mix of her great hrandfather and Baster Keaton. Imaginative. Tender. Simply great!
Quotes & Highlights
- “An absolute spellbinder . . .an enchanting dream, and like most vivid reveries, it momentarily colors the way you see the waking world.” --<em>London Daily Telegraph</em>
- “Charm is a much-abused word but <em>Aurélia’s Oratorio</em> has it in spades... an upsidedown, topsy-turvy world that Aurélia opens up, a world where the magic is all in the detail.” --<em>Metro London</em>
- “A show of wit and beauty, with haunting stage images.” --<em>Variety</em>
Aurélia Thierrée was first seen on the A.R.T. stage as a young girl, performing in the Cirque Imaginaire with her parents. Now an actress and acrobat in her own right, Aurélia has charmed audiences around the world with this dazzling display of stage illusion, inspired by the magic of music hall and circus, and co-created with her mother Victoria Thierrée Chaplin.
