The State Ballet Theatre of Ukraine presents Sleeping Beauty at the F.M. Kirby Center on Sunday, December 11.

Don’t miss the world’s favorite masterpiece of classical ballet perfromed by the internationally acclaimed State Ballet Theatre of Ukraine, which returns to North America and Canada in the 2022/23 season.

The evil fairy Carabosse curses Princess Aurora for 100 years of sleep with a single-finger prick on her 16th birthday. Doomed by fate, only a sweet kiss from the prince can break the spell and wake up the sleeping beauty. A fascinating tale comes to life in Andrey Litvinov’s exquisite production, “a master class in classical style” (The Guardian), with “some of the most delightful steps in the 19th-century repertoire”. This superb classical production features Tchaikovsky’s delightful music, visually stunning with lavish sets and elaborate costumes by Konstantin Pinchuk.

The entire family will love this magical experience, filled with spectacular sets and enchanting choreography.

Tickets go on sale Friday, July 22 at 10:00 a.m. and will be available online at www.kirbycenter.org, or charge by phone at (570) 826-1100. A Kirby Member pre-sale begins Thursday, July 21 at 10:00 a.m.

Showtime is 5 pm, and doors open at 3:30 pm.
