Last night, we saw Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's The Sleeping Beauty at the Benedum Center and thought it was fabulous! We made a girls night out of it and dined at Six Penn beforehand.
 
It was the first ballet of the 2014-2015 season and the entire production was spectacular. The costumes were absolutely beautiful and reminded me of a sparkling confection. The dancing was energetic and fun, even a little quirky, but still maintained the elegance and grace found within ballet. The set design was beautiful, as well.
 
In Act Two, there is a stunning scene where the Lilac Fairy shows Princess Aurora (who has been asleep for one hundred years) to Prince Desire in a vision by a lake. Afterward, he is so enchanted that they both travel to her by boat. When the boat moves across the stage, it's magical. It is truly one of the most beautiful scenes I've seen yet from the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre.
 
Please visit PBT's website for show times and to purchase tickets for The Sleeping Beauty.
