SLEEPING BEAUTY –
the battle between good and evil 


Princess Aurora is to be christened, and her six fairy godmothers are celebrating with magical gifts. Carabosse, the evil fairy, isn’t on the guest list. In retaliation, she puts a curse on the child. When the princess turns 16, she is fated to prick her finger on a spindle and die. But the Lilac Fairy has yet to give her gift, and manages to soften the curse. The princess is no longer doomed to die, but must to sleep for a hundred years, from which she can only be awakened by the kiss of a prince…

Sleeping beauty is one of the greatest classical ballets of all time, set to Piotr Tchaikovsky’s magical score. Choreographer Márcia Haydée’s version of Sleeping Beauty lends new depth to the evil fairy Carabosse. A psychological portrait of evil – but no one is altogether evil.
