Boston Ballet's The Sleeping Beauty

On Friday night, Isabelle and I had the opportunity to attend opening night of Boston Ballet’s The Sleeping Beauty. It was the perfect girl’s night out for us and the show was amazing. I always marvel at the talent and grace of the dancers. The costumes were beautiful and we loved seeing the beloved fairy tale come alive before us on stage. The performance begins with the christening of Princess Aurora, follows her through her finger prick, and eventual spell break by true love’s first kiss.
