The Moscow Ballet "La Classique" invites the whole family to a spectacular evening of ballet at Dubai Opera, with Tchaikovsky's fantastically popular score, Sleeping Beauty. 

La Classique was founded in 1990 by its current artistic director Elik Melikov.

With its ballet mastery, lavish costumes, and magnificent stage sets, the illustrious La Classique will take us on a mystical journey to the fairytale world of princess Aurora the Sleeping Beauty.

Once upon a time, a distant kingdom celebrated the birth of a beautiful princess whom they named 'Aurora'. The evil fairy 'Carabosse' casts a spell on the princess, meaning she will die from a needle prick. The king banishes all knitting needles from the kingdom. On her 16th birthday, she pricks her finger on a needle hidden in a bouquet presented to her by the disguised Carabosse. She falls into a deep sleep. Prince 'Desiree' encounters the Lilac Fairy, where he finds the princess of his dream, Princess Aurora, the Sleeping Beauty, and kisses her gently back to life.

Don’t miss this two-act fairytale performance La Classique which captures the imagination, the passion and the magic of the fantastic Sleeping Beauty.

A hugely enjoyable dance spectacular for ballet lovers of all ages.
