The Sleeping Beauty returns to Pretoria!


The South African Ballet Theatre (SABT) will once again present the magical fairytale ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ at the South African State Theatre from Thursday, November 17th to Sunday December 18th 2011. SABT traditionally celebrates the end of the year with a season at the South African State Theatre and ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ makes for ideal family entertainment. ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ has not been staged in Pretoria since 1997.

Based on the original choreography by Marius Petipa, and set to Pytor Tchaikovsky’s sweeping score, this season will feature SABT stars such as Principal dancer Burnise Silvius, and recently promoted Principal dancer Shannon Glover.

Also appearing in ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ are a host of well – known characters such as Princess Aurora, the evil fairy Carabosse, the Lilac Fairy, Puss in Boots and Little Red Riding Hood.

The season is performed to a recorded score performed by the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Sonja Bass. The production is suitable for ages three and up.

SABT is the country’s foremost professional ballet company and has established itself as a major player in the performing arts with impressive productions of classical ballets, new works by South African choreographers and collaborations across international boundaries. 2011 marks the Company’s tenth anniversary.
