To reveal the magnificence of The Sleeping Beauty, McAllister invites Gabriela Tylesova, who served as set designer at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games and 2006 Doha Asian Games, to build the stage into a gorgeous fairyland with Baroque golds and creams.

That evening, Nicolette Fraillon, Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Company, raised her baton over the National Ballet of China Symphony Orchestra to perform Tchaikovsky’s classics in a fresh way.

In the prelude, Senior Artist Amy Harris performed the soft waltz with her limbs stretched out in graceful postures, interpreting the Lilac’s amiable and righteous image.

In Act II, Prince Désiré, played by Chinese dancer GUO Chengwu, defeated the evil fairy and woke up the prince, who had slept for over a hundred years, with a gentle kiss.

Senior Artists Jade Wood and Brett Chynoweth brought “Bluebirds Pas de Deux”, rendering the bluebirds to life with dynamic and lively dance movements.

At the finale, the stage was dressed into a masquerade scene—Louis XIV style, where Aurora and her prince performed a “Wedding Pas de Deux” by revolving dizzyingly and jumping soul-stirringly.
