Joburg Theatre Stream's The Sleeping Beauty Ballet TONIGHT!

THE SLEEPING BEAUTY will be available for streaming TONIGHT. The link will be available today at 16h00 and streaming will take place at 18h00.

The grandest of all ballet classics comes to life in Joburg Ballet's production of The Sleeping Beauty. Cursed at her christening by a malevolent force, Princess Aurora is doomed to die when reaches the age of sixteen by pricking her finger on a spindle. But a kindly spirit intervenes: the Princess does not die but falls into a deep sleep from which she is awakened a hundred years later by a Prince’s kiss. The leading roles are danced by guest artists Anaïs Chalendard and Florimond Lorieux; the full company of Joburg Ballet is onstage and Tchaikovsky's magnificent score is played by the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Brandon Phillips.
