Ballet and music in a magical journey with “Sleeping Beauty”

Lefkosia Youth Ballet in collaboration with the Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra

Lefkosia Youth Ballet proudly presents the classical ballet “Sleeping Beauty”, with a live performance by the Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra, at the Municipal Theater of Nicosia, on December 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th, 2021, at 7:00 p.m.

“Sleeping Beauty”, is a classical ballet consisting of a prologue and three acts. It was first performed in 1890 with choreography by Marius Petipa and music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The score was completed in 1889 and is the second of the composer’s three ballets. The scenario is based on Charles Perrault’s La Belle au bois dormant.

“Sleeping Beauty” is the second production of the LYB in collaboration with CYSO, after the great success of the first co-production of the two, in December 2019 with the production of “Coppelia”. This is a commendable collaboration through which the new talents of Cyprus in both classical dance and music excel.

The performers are the Lefkosia Youth Ballet members, under the guidance of the Board of Directors of LYB, and the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra members, under the direction of conductor Yiorgos Kountouris.

The purpose of this production is to encourage the cooperation between young talented dancers and musicians, to promote the arts and to contribute to the cultural events of the capital.
