The (rarely staged) final act of Sleeping Beauty includes the reconciliation of the Lilac Fairy and Carabosse…


We’ve had three great performances so far, plus one equally great student matinee, and are in the final stretch of the last three shows. The dancers are more than just hanging in there through their fatigue, which must be considerable (several of the women dance five roles in EACH show, changing costumes for each part, while the lucky ones merely have four). Everyone is dancing incredibly well and the company looks stronger than I have ever seen it. That’s the reward for tackling such a hard classical ballet. If you haven’t seen it yet, surprise surprise, I recommend that you do!
