Just in time for the holidays, Interlochen’s Director of Dance Joseph Morrissey creates an all-new interpretation of the classic storybook ballet, The Sleeping Beauty. A tale of good versus evil, this two-act version of the ballet will be presented with colorful and newly enhanced sets, costumes and more. Featuring heroic sword fights, enchanted fairy tale characters, wicked goblins and of course some magic too, The Sleeping Beauty promises to be a visual spectacle suited for families, friends, and first-time ballet goers.

The Sleeping Beauty features Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s timeless and passionate score with live accompaniment by the Interlochen Arts Academy Orchestra, under the conductorship of Dr. Matthew Schlomer.

Guest starring Academy theater arts faculty member, Gulshirin Dubash as the evil fairy Carabosse, with additional special appearances by Little Red Riding Hood, The Frog Prince and Puss in Boots!
