Break a curse with a kiss

Can true love last a hundred years? Princess Aurora is asleep in her castle after a spell is cast on her by an evil fairy, and only a kiss from her prince can awaken her. Masterminded by renowned local choreographer Yuri Ng and narrated by Rick Lau, Ballet Classics for Children: The Sleeping Beauty is a one-hour abridged version of the full length classic that will enchant children with its innovative blend of storytelling, dance and audience interaction. This fun, popular series sells out every year and is a wonderful first introduction to a live ballet performance for children as young as 3 years old.
