Event Series: Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty

May 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


In an extraordinary collaboration between The Children’s Ballet of San Antonio (CBSA) and the American Ballet Theatre (ABT), Principal Dancers Skylar Brandt and Herman Cornejo will share their remarkable talents with San Antonio for the first time in this classic fairytale.  The CBSA production of Sleeping Beauty has all the romance, enchantment, and beauty you would expect from this classic story, told through the magic of dance. The story opens with the christening of the beautiful Princess Aurora, who receives a curse from the evil fairy Carabosse. The curse states that Aurora will fall into a deep sleep on her sixteenth birthday, which, in this reimagining, is a Quincenera. The only thing that can awaken the princess from her slumber is a kiss from her one true love.

A talented cast of roughly 200 young CBSA artists will bring the characters and story to life through creative performances. The performers, ages 3-19,  include internationally acclaimed classical dancers, gymnasts, actors, vocalists, special needs artists, and other exceptional young people. Filled with spectacular digital and physical scenery, live music, grand special effects, and interactive elements, CBSA’s Sleeping Beauty will expose audience members of all ages to an enchanting world where love conquers all.

WHEN:  Fri., May 12, 7 p.m.,  Sat., May 13, 2 p.m.,  Sat. May 13, 7 p.m.
