Description

The renowned American Ballet Theatre will perform an all-new production of the Tchaikovsky classic, The Sleeping Beauty. The Sleeping Beauty is a three-act ballet staged by Kevin McKenzie, former ABT ballerina Gelsey Kirkland and Michael Chernov after choreography by Marius Petipa. The Sleeping Beauty’s West Coast premiere at The Center will follow its world premiere in New York City on June 1. Set to the famous score by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky, American Ballet Theatre’s new production brings together the Tony® Award-winning team of Tony Walton and Willa Kim, with lighting designed by Richard Pilbrow and Dawn Chiang.

_The Sleeping Beauty _brings to life the timeless fairy tale of the beautiful Princess Aurora, the evil sorceress Carabosse, a curse which brings a century of sleep and the awakening kiss by a handsome prince. There is a wealth of dazzling dance in the new production which will be a delight for all to enjoy.

The Center’s International Dance Series has been made possible by the generous support of Audrey Steele Burnand. The Center applauds its 2006-2007 dance season sponsors: Jane and Jim Driscoll; The Segerstrom Foundation Endowment for Great Performances and the Los Angeles Times. The Center also thanks Sonnet Technologies. Mercedes Benz is the Presenting Sponsor of the Orange County Performing Arts Center’s 2007-2008 Season.
