Kohlenberg Lyceum Series Presents Russian Festival Ballet’s “Sleeping Beauty”

The Kohlenberg Lyceum Series continues this semester with the Russian Festival Ballet’s “Sleeping Beauty” at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 28 in Baldwin Hall Auditorium.

The ballet tells the tale of a baby princess, condemned at her christening by an evil fairy to prick her finger and die on her 16th birthday. She is saved by the gift of the good Lilac Fairy, who declares the princess will only sleep until awakened by the kiss of a prince. This fairy tale, replete with a king and queen, fairies, a beautiful princess and dream prince, magical stage effects and courtly splendor, lends itself perfectly to a magical evening of ballet.
