Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty’s timeless tale of a beautiful princess, a dashing prince and the triumph of good over evil with a single kiss has delighted audiences for years. NC Dance Theatre is thrilled to perform Sleeping Beauty for the first time, with choreography by Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux, gorgeous costumes, magical sets and Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable score. Take your family on a whimsical journey to an enchanted kingdom, as this beloved childhood story is sure to leave audiences of all ages feeling happily ever after.
