Nevada Ballet Theatre`s 45th Season opens with A Smith Center Premiere, the full-length production of The Sleeping Beauty. A vengeful fairy, a beautiful princess and a delicate pierce of her finger lead to a 100 year slumber for an entire kingdom, breakable only by the kiss of a handsome prince. Set to a lyrical score by Tchaikovsky, a bounty of ethereal fairies and courtly splendor fills this enchanted land. As the power of true love`s kiss triumphs, characters from across the land arrive to celebrate, each with a joyful dance worthy of this happy ending. The Sleeping Beauty is a fairy tale the entire family will enjoy.
