19:00 The Sleeping Beauty
Ballet in three acts with a prologue to music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. 170 min (with two intervals). Nacho Duato’s libretto based on the script by Ivan Vsevolozhsky and Charles Perrault’s tale of the same name. Musical Director and Conductor: Dmitri Jurowski. Choreographer: Nacho Duato. Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty ballet rendered by a Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato is a unique approach for a classic work of our contemporary master, an outstanding smart and kind man. In this production Nacho Duato managed to create a charming magic mood in the dance language. «I wanted to speak to the audiences through their hearts – told the choreographer – you know these tales for kids – you take one card, it’s a wood, you pick another one, it’s a castle... It’s a tale, a fairy-tale for kids! This is especially important nowadays, when so many horrible things are happening”. The fairy-tale plot of this ballet is not as simple as it seems at first glance. This is a story of the main character growing up, finding love. Aurora’s part is the central one, it is essential to the ballet’s key theme, its storyline. The moment Aurora pricks her finger is very important. She bids farewell to her childhood and enters adulthood, where she finds love.
