Sleeping Beauty, American Repertory Ballet - Two Showtimes

Saturday May 20, 2017
2:00 PM

The Sleeping Beauty is perhaps the world’s most beloved, and famous, ballet. It is the enchanting story of Princess Aurora who is bewitched by the evil Carabosse and placed, along with her kingdom, into a deep and protective sleep by the benevolent Lilac Fairy. She and the kingdom are awakened by the noble Prince whose kiss breaks the spell. The idea for the ballet came from Ivan Vsevolozhsky, the director of the Imperial Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia, at the end of the 19th century. He tasked choreographer and ballet master Marius Petipa with creating the ballet, which turned out to be, arguably, his (and some would say the world’s) finest. He also commissioned Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky to compose the music; Tchaikovsky had written the score for Swan Lake 11 years prior.

Intimate Apparel, McCarter Theater

Saturday May 20, 2017
3:00 PM

3 and 8pm

The year is 1905. A young, single African American seamstress is supporting herself by creating exquisite lingerie for wealthy Manhattan clients. When a letter arrives from a stranger, it awakens a desire within her that leads to the love she yearned for, but is nothing like she expected. Jade King Carroll (The Piano Lesson) returns to McCarter to direct this tender, exquisitely-written historical romance from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage (Ruined, Sweat). It is a deeply moving tale of one woman’s discovery of her own empowerment and the true meaning of intimacy.
