what's it about

Incensed at being snubbed at the christening of Princess Aurora, the wicked fairy, Carabosse, lays a curse on the child, proclaiming that she will one day pierce her finger - and die. But the Lilac Fairy intervenes, and when the fateful day arrives, the princess and the entire palace instead fall into a deep sleep. A century later, Prince Florimund is guided to the castle by the Lilac Fairy, overcoming the obstacles created by Carabosse, and awakening the sleeping princess with a kiss. It is love at first sight, the palace awakes and a parade of fairytale characters attends the royal wedding. A gorgeous Tchaikovsky score, classic Petipa choreography, an enchanting fairytale. Vienna Festival Ballet was founded by the celebrated Austrian dancer, Peter Mallek. Since the company's first performance, VFB has grown and prospered. Engaging talented, international dancers from all corners of the globe, this dynamic company continue to delight audiences throughout Europe with their dazzling but "faithful to tradition" performances.
