Join us for an evening to delight and inspire.

A Song in the Dark

Design: Kate Venables
Lighting: Jordan Tuinman

Balcony Pas de Deux from Romeo & Juliet

Aurora’s Wedding from The Sleeping Beauty The final act of The Sleeping Beauty culminates in the wedding of Princess Aurora and Prince Désiré. In this festive celebration, the King gives the happy couple a pair of magical bluebirds in a golden cage as a wedding present. The joyful couple perform a beautiful and traditional duet, courtiers dance and sing and they all live happily ever after.

Choreography: Greg Horsman
Music: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Design: Gary Harris
