    Brandywine Ballet presents Sleeping Beauty May 18-20!


    The performance features gorgeous ballet storytelling featuring the classic Sleeping Beauty story: Princess Aurora was born to the King and Queen of a magical fairytale kingdom. A wicked fairy curses Aurora at her christening, and promises that she will prick her finger on a spindle and die. The Lilac Fairy comes to the aid of the royal family, and uses her magic to alter the wicked Carabosse’s spell. Aurora is now destined fall into a deep sleep only to be awoken by true love’s kiss. A century later, with the help of The Lilac Fairy, a Prince seeks to wake Aurora from this sleep and lift the spell. A magical story awaits audiences who embark on this adventure.


    Experience this classic tale with a unique twist. The ballet is breathtaking, and the story will take you on an adventure you won’t soon forget.
