SYNOPSIS
PROLOGUE. At the christening of Princess Aurora, the Fairies present their gifts for the baby, but the procession is interrupted by the arrival of the Wicked Fairy Carabosse who tells King Florestan and his Queen that although their daughter will grow into a beautiful girl, she will prick her finger and die. The Lilac Fairy intervenes, promising that Aurora will not die but sleep until awakened by the kiss of a Prince.
ACT I. It is Aurora's 16th birthday. She must choose one of the four Princes for her future husband. The Wicked Fairy Carabosse in disguise hands her a bouquet of flowers in which is con?cealed a spindle. As she falls to the ground, the Lilac Fairy appears and casts her spell putting everyone to sleep.
ACT II. One hundred years have passed. Prince Florimund and his hunting party pause in a glade. When the Prince is alone, the Lilac Fairy comes to him showing him a vision of Aurora with whom he falls in love. He begs the Lilac Fairy to lead him to the sleeping Princess. Journeying to the castle, he is confronted by Carabosse whom he overpowers, and upon finding the Princess, awakens her with a kiss.
ACT III. In the great hall of the castle, everyone is gathered to celebrate the wedding of Princess Aurora and Prince Florimund.
