Following the story of the classic fairy tale, The Sleeping Beauty tells the chronicle of Princess Aurora and the unfortunate curse placed upon her by the evil Carabosse – in which pricking her finger on a spindle causes Aurora to fall into a hundred year’s sleep. With the help of good fairies and Prince Florimund, Aurora is awakened and her wedding to the young Prince is celebrated by all. This innovative program mixes dance performance, lecture, and demonstration to educate children and adults alike about everything that goes into a performing arts production. Presented by Artistic Director Nell Shipman and the dancers of the Portland School of Ballet, Building Ballets will walk the audience through the process of creating and performing a ballet. This show will feature an abridged version of The Sleeping Beauty and include a behind the scenes look at choreography, set design, lighting, and more!
