How about a splash of art this Memorial Day Weekend? After a dip in the pool or between barbecues, dive into the magical world of “The Sleeping Beauty” as BalletNova performs this classic ballet on May 28 and May 29 at Kenmore Theatre.

Get carried away by this opulent production that tells the classic fairy tale through brilliant dancing, glorious costumes, glittering sets and a lush musical score. Meet Princess Aurora, Prince Désiré, the Lilac Fairy and the wicked Carabosse in this tale of good vs. evil and the triumph of true love. With choreography by Matthew Powell after Marius Petipa, audience members of all ages will delight in this production.

Originally scheduled to be performed in May of 2020, BalletNova is thrilled to bring this ballet to life featuring dancers from BalletNova’s Conservatory Division, with special guests from Washington Ballet Studio Company and GinDance.

Little ones will delight in BalletNova’s “Petite Sleeping Beauty,” an abridged version of the full-length production that’s just right for the preschoolers ages 3-5. Performed in BalletNova’s Fredgren Studio Theatre on May 21 and 22, this is a great way to introduce youngsters to live performance in a more relaxed atmosphere. Children can also take part in a free creative movement class right after the performance!

Tickets for both of these events are available on BalletNova’s website: https://balletnova.org/performances/?p_id=96

See you at the theatre!
