A classic fairytale of evil defeated and love triumphant, Joburg Ballet opens the 2019 season with a new production of The Sleeping Beauty, staged for the company by former British ballerina Maina Gielgud, from Friday 29 March to Sunday 7 April at Joburg Theatre. Set to Tchaikovsky’s sweepingly romantic score, played live by the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra, this production is made possible by a grant of over R1 460 000 from the National Lotteries Commission.*
Through an evil spell cast by the wicked fairy Carabosse, Princess Aurora pricks her finger and falls into a deep sleep for 100 years, but it takes just one kiss from her Prince to guarantee a happy-ever-after ending for this bewitching ballet.
