We all know the story of Sleeping Beauty from our childhood; Aurora pricking her finger on the spinning wheel, falling into an infinite sleep and eventually being woken up by the sweet kiss of her Prince Charming.
Although we’ll always have the Disney classic, the Ajkun Ballet Theatre company are currently showing their own version of the tale. Get prepared for a beautiful show filled with ballerinas and fairies enchanting the stage to the soundtrack of Tchaikovsky’s mesmerising symphonies. Choreographed by none other than Chiara Ajkun, this show is a must-see for ballet lovers and first timers, with close-ups to the talented performers and even meet-n-greets with the cast at the end of the production.
The good news is that all collected proceeds are going to benefit “Creativity Matters!”; a program that supports the creation of new art. You only have two available nights to see the ballet live at Alvin Ailey, so make sure you get your tickets ASAP because they’re selling fast!
Date: April13th (7pm – 9pm) & April 14th (4pm – 6pm)
Address: 405 West 55th Street
