We saw the final program of the 2013/14 season, The Sleeping Beauty, last Friday evening, May 9th.  The costumes and scenery were courtesy of the Cincinnati Ballet and it appeared to be a faithful staging of the Tchaikovsky/Petipa Sleeping Beauty.


The artistic director, Stephen Mills, played Catalabutte and his assistant, Michelle Martin, did a dramatic turn as Carabosse in a fiery red wig.  Of the dancers, I would single out Ashley Lynn Sherman, as Aurora; Jaime Lynn Witts, as the Lilac Fairy; Jordan Moser, in the Jewels divertissement in Act III; Michael Burfield and Grace Morton, as Puss 'n' Boots and the White Cat, in Act III; and Rebecca Johnson, as Princess Florine, as the standouts of the evening.
