Ballet West's The Sleeping Beauty

Ballet West's The Sleeping Beauty runs February 10-18! Tickets here: https://balletwest.org/events/sleepingbeauty22 The beloved fairy tale, adored by Utah audiences for decades, gets an opulent makeover with the premiere of sumptuous new sets designed by critically acclaimed French artist and painter Alain Vaes. In 2011, Ballet West Artistic Director Adam Sklute and Resident Designer David Heuvel reconceived the costumes. Now Ballet West unveils the first new sets created for this work since its BW premiere in 1986. From birth, Aurora is beset by trials—a jealous witch, cursed spindles, pernicious brambles and thorns—and the only chance for redemption for her and her kingdom is true love’s kiss. The fairy of wisdom, a loving godmother, sets out to ensure Aurora’s happiness and the kingdom’s triumph, celebrated with a wedding attended by the most fanciful fairy tale characters ever to grace the stage. Adam Sklute’s unique adaptation of the spectacular Marius Petipa ballet set to Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable score is an evening of nonstop, fanciful adventure.

This 100th-anniversary production of Nijinska’s Les Noces is paired with an ode to the stages of love in Jerome Robbins’ In the Night and Gerald Arpino’s Light Rain, a sparkling tribute to youth. Les Noces, or The Wedding, is a rarely-performed, Diaghilev-era gem. The groundbreaking work, created in 1923 by a woman choreographer and woman designer, is set to a breathtaking and complex Stravinsky score, using a 40-member chorus, four soloists, four grand pianos, and percussion. Jerome Robbins explores the phases of relationships in his In the Night. Three couples present themes of harmony, passion, and naïve young love to Chopin’s Nocturnes for solo piano. Light Rain sparkles and glistens in this third Ballet West premiere of the evening’s repertoire. A fusion of eastern and western music is the backdrop to Gerald Arpino’s dynamic ode to youth and all its passions.
