Moscow Ballet La Classique return to BREC with the ballet’s most loved fairy tale.

Founded in 1990, La Classique combines ballet mastery, lavish costumes and magnificent stage sets to bring exceptional ballets to the stage. In 2020 La Classique will take us on a mystical journey to the fairy tale world of Princess Aurora, the Sleeping Beauty.

Once upon a time a distant kingdom celebrated the birth of a beautiful princess, Aurora. Jealous of her beauty, an evil fairy places a curse on the princess; Aurora will grow to be beautiful and healthy but on her sixteenth birthday she will prick her finger on a spindle and fall into a 100 year sleep.

Composed by Tchaikovsky in 1889, Sleeping Beauty focuses on the conflicting forces of good and evil against the backdrop of one of the worlds most famous scores.

La Classique’s 2 act fairy tale performance will be a fantastic evening for the whole family as they capture the imagination, passion and magic of sleeping beauty.

“ The set and backdrop were breathtaking and intricate, dazzling costumes only added to the magic of the fairytale story.”
