The Sleeping Beauty

By In Dance 1 hour 15 min

In this interpretation, Sleeping Beauty lives in isolation in a world shaped by hedonism, in which he creates a social panorama in a kind of chamber play. Only through a fall does she land on the ground of facts. She falls into a deep sleep in which the unconscious penetrates to the surface. Sleeping Beauty finally awakens in a reality that is new to her and that will make her a self-confident and self-determined woman. With a lot of humor bordering on the absurd, deals with the difficult process of growing up and emancipation from your parents' generation and home. He creates the story of the search for self-determined freedom and identity – but also tells of incredible power, beauty, love and longing.

Choreographer Andrey Kaydanovskiy's reinterpretation of the fairy tale and his radical choreographic renewal have won over both the audience and the critics. At Christmas, Sleeping Beauty will once again conquer the hearts of the audience in the Great Hall of the Music Theatre.

In a prologue and two pictures, Andrey Kaydanovskiy's production tells the story of Princess Aurora from the time of her birth to her coming of age. In doing so, he transfers the fairy tale to the present day and thus proves the surprising topicality of the material. He deals particularly intensively with the symbolism of the fairy tale. In the musical field, too, tradition and modernity enter into a virtuoso union. Angel Vassilev's electronic sounds are elegantly woven into the original score performed by the Bruckner Orchestra. With and his proven team, Andrey Kaydanovskiy created a magnificent, colourful, humorous spectacle for the whole family.
