THE SLEEPING BEAUTY BALLET arrives at the Jacksonville Center for the Performing Arts

The State Ballet Theater of Ukraine’s SLEEPING BEAUTY BALLET will be presented by the FSCJ Artist Series, sponsored by VyStar Credit Union, on Sunday, January 8, 2023 at 3:00 p.m. at the Jacksonville Center for the Performing Arts (formerly the Times-Union Center ). Tickets will go on sale Friday, September 2, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. on FSCJArtistSeries.org.

In the SLEEPING BEAUTY BALLET, the evil fairy Carabosse curses Princess Aurora to 100 years of sleep with a single finger prick on her 16th birthday. Condemned by fate, only a gentle kiss from the prince can break the spell and awaken the sleeping beauty. A hauntingly dark tale comes to life in Andrey Litvinov’s exquisite production, “a masterclass in the classical style” (The Guardian), with “some of the most delightful stages of 19th century repertoire”.

Visually stunning with lavish sets and elaborate costumes by Konstantin Pinchuk, this superb classical production features Tchaikovsky’s delightful music performed by the Dnipro Philharmonic Orchestra.

Ticket prices start at $33.75. Tickets for children 12 and under are 50% off the base price (not valid at the first price level). Resort fees and service fees are not discounted. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 2, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. at fscjartistseries.org or by phone at (904) 632-5000.
