Ballet Philippines presents "The Sleeping Beauty" (Dec. 8-11, 2011)

Ballet Philippines presents The Sleeping Beauty at the CCP Main Theater showing on December 8 (Thursday) at 10 AM and 3 PM, December 9 (Friday) at 3 PM and 8 PM and December 11 (Sunday) at 3 PM. The performances on December 10 (Saturday-3PM and 8PM) are sponsored by Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Employees Association and Knowledge Channel, respectively.

The Manila Symphony Orchestra will play Tchaikovsky's music live for one last time on December 9 at 8 PM, with Katherine Trofeo as Princess Aurora and Jean Marc Cordero as Prince Desire.

Dance luminary Edna Vida Froilan’s reaction to the first weekend performance was nothing less than effusive on social media: “Congrats Ballet Philippines—I loved The Sleeping Beauty! Your beautiful dancing kept me wide-awake and amazed! Carissa Adea (whom I saw as Aurora, partnered by Japanese dancer, Nobuo Fujino) was breathtaking! The fairies rocked!”

Principal dancers Candice Adea and Carissa Adea, soloist Richardson Yadao and company member Earl John Arisola also perform the roles of Princess Aurora and Desire on the remaining performances.
