Omaha Performing Arts Presents: The Sleeping Beauty

As a little girl, I danced in my living room, imagining I was a sugar plum fairy (a la The Nutcracker) or a beautiful swan (Swan Lake). Tchaikovsky’s ballets are part of a standard when it comes to classic ballet, and The Sleeping Beauty is no exception. A fairytale on stage, the quintessential performance by the Moscow Festival Ballet will be on stage for one night only at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha.


The Sleeping Beauty is appropriate for all ages, in fact, my 60-something parents will be enjoying the show, and many of my friends will be bringing their little ballerinas. As I find myself becoming a “dance mom”, I am always looking for ways to help my daughter appreciate the arts and see the beauty of dance on stage. Tchaikovsky’s ballets are a perfect opportunity to introduce your young dancers to the ballet or remind yourself why his ballets translate so well to stage.


From costumes to music, and of course, the dancing itself, The Sleeping Beauty is sure to delight with a story of princesses, witches, and of course, true love’s kiss.


The Moscow Festival Ballet, founded by Sergei Radchenko in 1989, will only be on stage for one night in Omaha. You may remember them from their outstanding performance in Swan Lake in April 2014 in Omaha.

Tickets will go fast, so be sure to order online at or call the box office today at 402.345.0606. The performance is on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. at the Orpheum Theater, 409 S. 16th St. (Sponsored by Bank of the West)
