Cincinnati Ballet is proud to present a world premiere for the 2023-2024 Family Series: Sleeping Beauty, The Untold Story. The one-hour, narrated Family Series features CB2 dancers, along with performers from the Professional Training Division and young dancers from the Otto M. Budig Academy.
Set to Tchaikovsky’s brilliant score, this production reframes the classic story of Princess Aurora, the girl who is cursed to prink her finger and fall asleep for a hundred years. In this modern retelling, it’s Aurora herself who holds the power to break the wicked spell. With a positive message of empowerment, it’s a perfect introduction to ballet for children and adults alike.
Artistic Director Jodie Gates, Second Company—CB2 Director Suzette Boyer Webb and Director of Education Carolyn Guido Clifford are developing a new vision for the classic fairytale ballet.
