Tickets on Sale Soon: Pacific Northwest Ballet's "The Sleeping Beauty"

Pacific Northwest Ballet Artistic Director Peter Boal has announced plans for a new production of the classic ballet The Sleeping Beauty. A contemporary twist on this classic story, the vision for the work is grounded in a timeless, mythical Pacific Northwest​ place. PNB’s staging will feature designs by some of the leading artists of our time, including scenic designs by Preston Singletary. Costumes are being designed by Paul Tazewell, Tony Award-winner for Hamilton (and PNB’s Swan Lake), and puppet master Basil Twist will provide additional magical elements.

The Sleeping Beauty
World Premiere is January 31st – February 9th, 2025. Tickets will go on sale soon, with single tickets going on sale July 16th for subscribers and July 23rd for the general public.

“PNB’s new production of The Sleeping Beauty offers an exciting opportunity to present a timeless tale in a new light,” said Boal. “Our Beauty begins with a reexamining of original source materials. Notions of good versus evil, destiny and empowerment, and innovative interpretations of character and craft define this production. Northwest glass artist, Preston Singletary creates an ancestral realm anchored in North America."

Singletary notes that "When I think about this story it ties in with mysticism, magic and overcoming supernatural forces. It reminds me of Tlingit storytelling where symbolism and stagecraft come together to teach values to society".

The Sleeping Beauty World Premiere is scheduled for January 31st, 2025 as part of the company’s 2024-2025 season. Learn more now at the Pacific Northwest Ballet website.
