Chattanooga Ballet presents ‘Sleeping Beauty’

The Chattanooga Ballet will present the third act of “The Sleeping Beauty” along with several contemporary works on Saturday, May 5 and Sunday, May 6 at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre Mainstage Theatre.

In this new staging created for The Chattanooga Ballet, company artistic director Andrew Parker also included excerpts from other sections of the fairy tale ballet, including the “Garland Waltz” and several of the “Prologue Variations.”

The leading roles will be danced by Chattanooga Ballet artists Samantha Sole (Princess Aurora) and Dillon Davis (Prince Desire).

Also featured on the dance program will be Chattanooga native Alia Kache’s “Clickbait,” commissioned by the Chattanooga Ballet and created last summer during a week-long educational residency with Kache.

The Chattanooga Ballet School Ensemble dancers will debut a new work by Karen Smith and Joellen Wojtowicz titled “Adiemus.” The piece is set to the music of Karl Jenkins. The Chattanooga Ballet will also present the world premiere of Andrea Vierra Greene’s “Layers of Sight.”
