Summary A ballet originally choreographed in 1890. Good fairies bestow gifts on the infant princess Aurora, but the uninvited evil fairy, Carabosse, arrives and puts a curse on the child - one day she will prick her finger on a spindle and die. The Lilac Fairy then moderates this to a promise that she will merely fall into a deep sleep for 100 years and be awakened by a prince's kiss. At the princess's 16th birthday celebration, a disguised Carabosse gives her a bouquet with a spindle hidden, and Aurora pricks her finger. The Lilac Fairy puts the whole kingdom to sleep along with Aurora. One hundred years later, Prince Florimund falls in love with the Lilac Fairy's image of Aurora, and battles Carabosse's creatures and other obstacles to reach the princess and break the spell. Finally, the entire court assembles for the wedding celebration.
