veaway: 2 Tickets to the New York Theatre Ballet's Sleeping Beauty

New York Theatre Ballet's Sleeping Beauty

New York Theatre Ballet presents Sleeping Beauty, a delightful one-hour ballet that will engage children ages 3 to 12 and charm the entire family.  Show times are Sat, May 14 @ 11 am & 1pm &  Sun, May 15 @ 11 am, 1pm & 3:30 pm at family-friendly NY Theatre Ballet Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street (between Park & Madison avenues – closest subway 59th street & Lexington), where each seat provides a close-up view of the dancers and all of the activity on stage.   Tickets are $40 for adults and $35 for children age 12 and under (plus a $1 facility fee).  Go to www.nytb.org, or call Ticketmaster at 800-982-2787 for tickets and more information.

Before the show Artistic Director Diana Byer will spend a few minutes with a short, interactive lesson on the art of mime in story ballets.

Choreographed by James Sutton, the Sleeping Beauty ballet delivers the magic of Princess Aurora’s 16th birthday, the mystery of the enchanted spell, the magnificence of the wedding, and a perfect storybook happy ending.  The story unfolds when Princess Aurora is bewitched by the evil Carabosse, then the benevolent Lilac Fairy places the princess and her kingdom into a deep, protective sleep.  She awakens when the noble Prince breaks the spell with a kiss.

Mr. Sutton is a Master Teacher of Dance (Ballet) at the Tisch School of the Arts, and has taught dance at Juilliard, the University of Wisconsin, the Metropolitan Opera Ballet, Ballet Hispanico of New York, and other significant schools and venues around the world.  His choreographic commissions include the Dallas Opera and the Goodspeed Opera House in Connecticut.  Mr. Sutton has appeared as principal dancer with Houston Ballet, Chicago Ballet, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, Milwaukee Ballet and DANCERS.  He is also a contributing writer for Ballet Review.

Based on the original Sleeping Beauty by Russian choreographer Marius Petipa, New York Theatre Ballet’s one-hour version is danced to music by Peter Tchaikovsky.  The elegant costumes were designed by Metropolitan Opera costume designer Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan.  The setting – a tiny, fanciful fairy kingdom situated beneath the roots of a giant tree – was conceived and created by set designer Gillian Bradshaw-Smith.
