Pyotr Tchaikovsky's ballet "The Sleeping Beauty" is based on Charles Perrault's fairy tale about Princess Aurora, who must be awakened from a hundred-year-old sleep by the kiss of a handsome prince. Light-winged fairies and the sinister witch Carabosse, Puss in Boots and the White Cat, Little Red Riding Hood and the Gray Wolf accompany the heroes in their adventures, offering to make a difficult choice between good and evil. Prince Désiré personifies the image of the Sun King - Louis XIV, the absolute monarch and perfect man. In the finale of the performance, the action is transferred to Versailles with its magnificent ceremony, where the characters of everyone's favorite fairy tales will be guests at the wedding celebration. In the production of Mikhail Venshchikov, The Sleeping Beauty preserves all the most famous fragments of the original Mariinsky production. At the same time, the action becomes more dynamic, and the parts of the main characters are more virtuoso. The characters of the play, which were previously exclusively mimic (the fairy Carabosse, Princes - contenders for the hand of Aurora, Catalabut) acquire detailed dance parts.

Art Center "Saint-Michel" develops the glorious traditions of Russian classical ballet, demonstrating its best examples in Europe, Japan and Latin America. Based on the experience of Sergei Diaghilev's Russian Seasons, the company does not limit itself to working with established brands in the field of performing and choreographic arts, but is open to experiment and search for new forms. Turning to old choreography, staging concert programs, creating new full-length performances are the result of the work of a talented team of like-minded people. Today, we are cooperating with specialists with colossal experience in the field of choreography, music, theatrical and design art.
