American Ballet Theatre: The Sleeping Beauty says
March 31 - April 3
Detroit Opera House

UMS and Michigan Opera Theatre join forces to bring American Ballet Theatre’s new production of The Sleeping Beauty to the Detroit Opera House. Choreographed by Marius Petipa with staging and additional choreography by Alexei Ratmansky, this classic story ballet premiered 125 years ago at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. The story is one of the most familiar and enchanting of all fairy tales: the beautiful princess Aurora is cursed by the evil sorceress Carabosse to sleep for 100 years, until she is awakened by the kiss of a handsome prince. It’s ballet on the grandest possible scale, with superstar dancers, opulent sets and costumes, and Tchaikovsky’s ravishing score performed live by the Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra.

UMS will provide round-trip luxury coach service for a nominal fee on Friday and Saturday (details to be announced).
