Many of us know the Disney classic of Sleeping Beauty well. The damsel in distress is cursed, pricks her finger, then falls into a deep sleep until she is woken by Prince Charming’s kiss.
This version of the story is a ballet backed by Tchaikovsky’s entrancing symphonies and choreographed by Dr. Chiara Ajkun, one of the most notable ballet professionals. Ajkun Ballet Presents: Sleeping Beauty will be at Rudolf Nureyev Studio at 130 West 56th Street in Manhattan on the 6th floor.
The “Face to Face” series offers guests complimentary photos with the cast and a meet-and-greet with the performers after the show. Tickets start at $54.50 (there are NO tickets available at the door).
