The Sleeping Beauty

Show Summary

Hand carved, beautifully costumed marionettes enact the play with the help of skilled manipulators.  Specially painted scenes and furnishings in correct proportion create the magic effect that causes you to say of the marionettes, “They are so lifelike.”  Accented by Tchaikovsky’s music, the dramatic and humorous script by Peabody Award winner Martin Stevens, and the gorgeous costumes by the internationally acclaimed Margie, make this familiar tale live again, delightfully.


The music in this production is entirely from “The Sleeping Beauty Suite” composed in 1890 by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

The bells heard after Princess Aurora falls asleep are from Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon, Vietnam, and were recorded live by Dan Raynor in August 2016.
