Sleeping Beauty is a classic ballet that tells the enchanting and timeless fairy tale of a young princess named Aurora. The story begins with the celebration of Aurora’s birth and her christening, during which fairies bestow various gifts upon her. However, an evil fairy named Carabosse, who was not invited to the celebration, places a curse on the princess. She foretells that on Aurora’s 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on a spindle and fall into a deep, eternal sleep.

Despite the curse, the Lilac Fairy intervenes and softens the curse, promising that Aurora will not die but will only fall into a deep slumber. On her 16th birthday, Aurora encounters a mysterious spindle and pricks her finger, fulfilling the curse. The Lilac Fairy, true to her promise, casts a spell to put the entire kingdom to sleep, ensuring that they will all awaken when Aurora does.

A hundred years pass, and a prince named Florimund, with the guidance of the Lilac Fairy, embarks on a quest to rescue Aurora. He defeats Carabosse and awakens the slumbering princess with a kiss. 


Tchaikovsky, one of the most famous Romantic composers, was born on May 7, 1840. His music has left an enduring imprint on classical music. He obtained a formal education in composing at the St. Petersburg Conservatory when he was younger. He was a prolific composer with an uncanny capacity to elicit strong emotions via his music. His most well-known pieces include “Swan Lake,” “The Nutcracker,” and the “1812 Overture.”
