This beloved storybook ballet will enchant the entire family!

The spell is cast! Alberta Ballet eagerly anticipates the return of The Sleeping Beauty! This classic fairy tale is destined to enchant ballet-goers of all ages. Since 2018, The Sleeping Beauty has been a crown jewel in the company’s repertoire, offering a quintessential classical ballet experience.

A beloved story for the ages, Alberta Ballet’s rendition has everything that aficionados treasure, from Tchaikovsky’s symphonic score to the exacting technique in the Rose Adagio. Younger audience members will delight when familiar fairy-tale characters appear as special guests in the final act’s royal wedding. What’s more, this sumptuous masterpiece embraces a unique local spin, as it unfolds against the backdrop of the awe-inspiring landscapes and foliage of the Canadian Rockies.

Staying true to the classic, Marius Pepita’s original choreography inspires Christopher Anderson’s brilliant artistic direction in a new take on a cherished favourite. Don’t miss this grand and breathtaking Alberta fairy tale, guaranteed to charm the whole family.

“It’s genius, all of it, and with exquisite costumes by David Heuvel and Peter Cazalet, set against Curtis Van Charles’ mountainview-inspired digital sets, it all charms incessantly.”
