Tchaikovskys Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake


Tonight and tomorrow, February 14 and 15, the Moscow Festival Ballet will perform two of Tchaikovsky's most beloved ballets: The Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake. Don't miss this opportunity to enjoy an evening of beauty, splendor, and romance. The Moscow Festival Ballet is one of Russia's most celebrated ballet companies and is appearing as one of the San Diego Symphony's Winter Special performances (though the Symphony will not be performing—the ballet will be danced to pre-recorded music).
 
The Sleeping Beauty begins tonight at 7:30 pm. The ballet was created by Marius Petipa, a man considered to be the most influential ballet master and choreographer that has ever lived. The Sleeping Beauty was the first of his classic ballets to be seen in Western Europe. It follows the classic fairy tale story of the beautiful Princess Aurora who falls under a curse of enchanted sleep until she is awakened by true love's kiss.
 
On Wednesday night, Swan Lake begins at 7:30 pm. Though the ballet was originally choreographed by Julius Reisinger, it is Marius Petipa's 1895 revival that has become the standard for most performances. The ballet tells the story of Odette, the Russian folklore princess transformed into a swan by the evil Rotbart until she is rescued by the love of Prince Siegfried.
