Just Waiting For That Kiss...

Before the Disney version of the story of a young princess who is put under a 100-year curse by an evil fairy and only awaken by the kiss of her true love, we had the ballet, The Sleeping Beauty. The stories are similar; it’s still the classic fairytale about Princess Aurora, Prince Florimund, the evil fairy Carabosse (or maybe you know her as Maleficent), and that pointy poisoned spindle, but this time, there are animated singing fairies. Instead, there is just the charming and memorable music of Tchaikovsky and a retelling of the French version of the story by Charles Perrault. Texas Ballet Theatre, joined by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, will be revisiting this classic tale for one weekend at Bass Performance Hall (525 Commerce St.) at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with matinees at 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $15-$180 and available at texasballettheater.org.
Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 19, 2 p.m. Starts: Oct. 18. Continues through Oct. 18, 2014
