Following the postponement of this glorious production in the wake of the pandemic, Charlotte Ballet is thrilled to present choreographer Matthew Hart’s Sleeping Beauty: A Fairy-Tailored Classic at the Belk Theater this holiday season. This reduced version of the Petipa classic, which will make its world premiere in Charlotte, stays true to its beloved choreography set to Tchaikovsky’s score with lavish sets and costumes by designer Peter Docherty. In the spirit of British pantomime, an onstage narrator guides the audience through the performance in this family-friendly production. Complete with glittering tutus, tiaras and captivating spells, the tale of Princess Aurora and her court is the perfect introduction to ballet!
Note: This performance has been reduced from the original 3+ hour length with a run time closer to 2 hours, including intermission.
Charlotte Ballet is committed to the health and safety of our dancers, students, staff, board members, volunteers, patrons and guests. The following safety protocols have been established to ensure a safe return to theaters:
- Revised seating that adheres to proper social-distancing guidelines
- Enhanced cleaning procedures and protocols
