The Angelika Film Center continues its Ballet in Cinema with the Bolshoi Ballet’s The Sleeping Beauty.  Long before Walt Disney worked his magic on this children’s fairy tale,  ballet master and choreographer  Marius Petipa and Russian composer Tchaikovsky worked together in 1890 to tell the storybook romance.  Their collaboration produced one of ballet’s most charming and famous classical ballets.

This production of The Sleeping Beauty, captured in HD, was one of the first performed in the newly renovated Bolshoi Theatre and features American dancer David Hallberg as Prince Desire. Hallberg is the first ever American principal dancer for the Bolshoi.  For this Big Deal we have a pair of tickets for the screening on Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas.

And while you are signing up for this Big Deal you might also want to sign up for our other Big Deal this week, tickets to see the Elvis Lives! tribute concert at Bass Performance Hall.
