“We invite our community to join the celebration — experience new world premiere choreography, works by ballet luminaries George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, and collaborative performances with a range of Louisville-based artists and musicians, all performed live by our incredible Louisville Ballet dance artists,” said Robert Curran, artistic director of the Louisville Ballet in a release.
Sleeping Beauty will play at the Brown Theatre from Thursday March 31 through Saturday April 2.
The choreography is a world premier by Louisville Ballet Resident Choreographer Adam Hoagland. Music remains the classic score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Set design is by Marion Williams and costumes are by Alexandra Ludwig.
The new production is inspired by mid-century glamor with a splash of humor and, of course, fairy-tale romance. Like the choreography, the costumes and the sets are all new.
“While the story remains familiar, it was also important to me to shift it towards a more contemporary world,” said Hoagland in his choreographer’s notes. “The women have more agency and control of the narrative. I have loved working with such technically skilled, strong artists in these roles, and watching them make each role their own.”
