Houston Ballet artistic director Stanton Welch discusses our 10-11 production of The Sleeping Beauty.

A flagship work for Houston Ballet, The Sleeping Beauty is recognized as one of the supreme achievements of classical ballet. The ballet is based on the classic French fairy tale by Charles Perrault: a beautiful princess is cursed by an evil fairy, and doomed to sleep for a hundred years — only to be awakened by the kiss of the handsome prince who loves her. Desmond Heeley’s spectacular designs beautifully evoke the magic, drama and whimsy of this great work. Running March 10-20, 2011.
