Philadelphia Ballet is thrilled to present Angel Corella’s The Sleeping Beauty, the beloved tale of magic and romance. With choreography by Corella, Artistic Director, and a grand and sweeping score by Tchaikovsky, The Sleeping Beauty runs ten performances at the Academy of Music, March 2-12. Tickets for all performances start at $25 and are available at philadelphiaballet.org.
“The classic story of The Sleeping Beauty is synonymous with enchantment, intrigue and the power of true love,” said Angel Corella. “It is also a beautiful showcase for the passion and skill of our dancers and the musicians of the Philadelphia Ballet Orchestra, who remind us all of the inimitable joy of live, in-person performance.”
A testament to the enduring brilliance of classical ballet, The Sleeping Beauty transports audiences to a magical kingdom in a tale filled with fantastical fairies and ravishing romance, ornate costumes and exquisite sets. Angel Corella’s dynamic and splendid choreography is brought to life by Philadelphia Ballet’s global company of 50 dancers, with Tchaikovsky’s iconic music performed by the Philadelphia Ballet Orchestra, under the direction of The Louise and Alan Reed Music Director, Beatrice Jona Affron.
“Ballet has the power to delight our imagination and engage our sense of wonder,” said Shelly Power, The Dr. Carolyn Newsom Executive Director. “The Sleeping Beauty whisks theatergoers away to a fantastical world where anything is possible. We look forward to sharing this transformative experience with our audiences here in Philadelphia.”
