The wicked fairy Carabosse is furious she wasn't invited to Princess Aurora's christening. She gives the baby a spindle, saying that one day the Princess will prick her finger on it and die. The Lilac Fairy makes her own christening gift a softening of Carabosse's curse: Aurora will not die, but will fall into a deep sleep, which only a prince's kiss will break.
On her 16th birthday, Aurora discovers the spindle and pricks her finger. She falls into an enchanted sleep, and the whole palace sleeps with her. One hundred years later, Prince Florimund discovers the palace, hidden deep within a great, dark forest. He wakes Aurora with a kiss.
The full-length ballet production will be an exciting night for the whole family and a great experience for all Qld National Ballet students, showcasing their craft and their ability to portray roles on stage, just like in a professional ballet company. We love seeing our whole school on stage together as one big family.
Don't miss out on this family favourite!!!
