Today at 1:00pm at the Galaxy Cinemas in Orangeville, the legendary Bolshoi Ballet will transmit the wonderful Sleeping Beauty live in HD by satellite from the stage of the great Bolshoi Theatre in the heart of Moscow. I’m not a big ballet kind of guy but my wife and daughter have tickets 🙂 (I kind of wanted to go but I’m showing houses to a client from Toronto)..ya ya…but that was my out…LOL
The Sleeping Beauty is one of the world’s best loved ballets. At the christening of Princess Aurora, the evil fairy Carabosse throws a terrible curse upon her and predicts that she will prick her finger and die on her sixteenth birthday. Fortunately, the Lilac Fairy who has not yet offered her gift lessens the curse- Aurora will be plunged into a deep sleep for a hundred years but will be awakened by a prince’s kiss.
The International symbol of Russian culture and traditions, the Bolshoi’s productions meet the highest international standards. With a wide repertoire ranging from national classics and worldwide masterpieces to grandiose new productions, the Bolshoi aims to place its classical heritage into the context of a modern Russian society and embrace new approaches to creative work as well as new technologies.
