St. Louis Symphony: The Sleeping Beauty Suite Staff Pick

When: Fri., Jan. 31, 10:30 a.m. and Sat., Feb. 1, 8 p.m. 2020
Price: $15-$68
Tchaikovsky's score for the ballet The Sleeping Beauty was more acclaimed than his Swan Lake, and within ten years it had been performed more than 200 times at the Imperial Ballet. (This despite the ballet being almost four hours long.) Part of its success is due to its inclusion of fairy-tale characters such as Puss-in-Boots, Little Red Riding Hood and the Gray Wolf. The full run time would be too much for most children, but The Sleeping Beauty Suite is a more manageable twenty or so minutes long. With the kids in mind, the St. Louis Symphony presents The Sleeping Beauty Suite this weekend with special pricing and pre-show photo opportunities with a live princess. Guest conductor Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider leads the orchestra through Mendelssohn's "Piano Concerto No. 2" and Schumann's "Mannfred" overture before finishing with The Sleeping Beauty Suite. Performances take place at 10:30 a.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday (January 31 and February 1) at Powell Hall (718 North Grand Boulevard, Tickets are $15 to $68, while children's tickets are only $10 with an adult admission.
