The upcoming The Sleeping Beauty Ballet will be presented by the Rudolf Nureyev State Ballet Theater, a professional ballet organization located in Ufa. Based in the Republic of Bashkortostan, the company has been named after world renowned ballet dancer, Rudolf Nureyev, who initiated his career from this very city. Over the years, the ballet organization has collaborated with dancers coming in from all over Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, America, Latvia and Belgium. It has also presented shows with prestigious ballets namely Grigorovich Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, Russian Ballet, Cairo Ballet, Mariinsky Ballet and Tchaikovsky Ballet Theater.
Since the Rudolf Nureyev State Ballet Theater’s creation in 1993, it has been under the leadership of Shamil Teregulov. It was after Teregulov’s retirement in 2008 that Leonora Kuvatova was approached to fill in the position of the artistic director. Over the years, many exciting and classic ballet presentations have been brought forth by the institutions. The ballet’s repertory consists of Adan’s Giselle, Minkus; Don Quixote, Prokofiev’s Cinderella, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet and Nutcracker and Sabitov’s Prometheus, including others. This time, the Rudolf Nureyev State Ballet Theater is bringing forth The Sleeping Beauty Ballet. The organization’s talented dancers will recreate Tchaikovsky’s classic tale with choreography being provided by Y. Grigorovich.
The majestic tale will present the three act ballet that was first performed back in 1890. Based on La Belle au bois dormant by Charles Perrault, The Sleeping Beauty was one of Tchaikovsky’s three ballets. The original ballet choreographer was provided by Marius Petipa and the inaugural performance was held at Mariinsky Theater located in St. Petersburg. It was a shame that Tchaikovsky wasn’t able to watch this ballet gain worldwide fame, as he approached his demise in 1893. To this date, The Sleeping Beauty is considered as the second most acclaimed ballet of the Imperial Ballet repertory.
Set during the Baroque period in Europe, the story of The Sleeping Beauty starts off with a christening ceremony held by King Florestan the XXIVth. At the ceremony, their beautiful new born daughter, Princess Aurora is greeted by fairies who bestow gifts of beauty, melody, grace and courage. However, the ceremony is cut short by Carabosse, the evil fairy who is enraged about not getting an invitation. Out of anger she places a curse on Princess Aurora, that when he sixteenth birthday arrives, she will die after pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel. Devastated the King and Queen beg the evil fairy for mercy but she vanishes into thin air. One of the fairies comes forward and alters the curse saying that even if Princess Aurora pricks her finger she will fall into a deep sleep for a hundred years until a handsome prince awakens her with a kiss. Witness one moving performance as this classic fairytale drama is presented in the form of a ballet. Get the Sleeping Beauty Ballet tickets.
