Louisville Ballet’s ‘The Sleeping Beauty’

The Louisville Ballet is reaching back to celebrate its 65th anniversary. This performance of Tchaikovsky’s “The Sleeping Beauty” is a revival of the production designed by Alun Jones during his tenure as the Ballet’s artistic director from 1978-2002. Helen Starr, the former principle dancer/associate artistic director who played Princess Aurora, also returns to help restage its original production. A few parts will be played by people from the production 30 years ago, including Anne Faulls, who was the Queen and is now the Empress.
