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 show is a wonderful introduction for everyone, including children as young as 3 years old.
