《睡公主》The Sleeping Princess

 

在我沉沉睡去之前……

 

香港芭蕾舞學會50周年特別呈獻《睡公主》,由香港芭蕾舞學會Heinz Bosl獎學金得主伍宇烈及「芭蕾舞超新星大賞」藝術總監Stephen Xavier聯手,動員來自32間舞蹈學校、超過180位師生,當中包括昔日曾參與芭蕾舞學會活動的老師,並特別邀請早年芭蕾舞學會演出主要演員呂紹梅及吳報釧再度踏上舞台,與年輕舞者共同獻技。

芭蕾舞學會繼1980、1993及1998年後第四度上演經典芭蕾舞劇《睡美人》,今回特別玩轉經典,卸下華麗的芭蕾舞衣,揭露舞台背後不足為外人道、最真實的一面,並邀得知名鋼琴家閻韻及新晉芭蕾舞琴師李崇民現場伴奏,讓觀眾感受傳統芭蕾舞的魅力所在。

Once upon a time, before I fell asleep…

 

Stepping into its 50th anniversary, The Hong Kong Ballet Group proudly presents The Sleeping Princess with its Heinz Bosl Memorial Scholarship recipient Yuri Ng and renowned musician-dancer Stephen Xavier as Co-Artistic Directors. To join hands in this grand celebration, over 180 students and teachers from 32 dance schools will take part in the performance, together with Cliff Lui and Sylvia Wu as guest performers, who were the first ballet prince and princess of the Hong Kong ballet scene.

The Sleeping Princess is a fresh rendition of the ballet classic Sleeping Beauty, in which audience will be taken to the imaginary backstage to witness how the magic of ballet begins before the fancy tutus and sets. With the live accompaniment by celebrated concert pianist Yim Wan and promising ballet pianist Simon Lee, you are about to experience the charm of classical ballet inside out.
