  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) April 28, 2018 - Fairy tales do come true this Mother’s Day as the award-winning Plainfield Dance Academy kicks off the 2018 dance season with a performance of the beloved ballet “The Sleeping Beauty” Sunday, May 13, 2018, at 5 p.m. at Chicago’s Studebaker Theatre, 401 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL. Tickets for the Chicago performance are $28 and can be purchased online at www.artsentertainment.thundertix.com or by calling 312-753-3210.

    The Chicago performance, which coincides with Mother’s Day, features a special “Dance, Dine and Drive” package that includes a ticket for the performance at the historic Studebaker Theatre located in the Fine Arts Building; a 15% discount for lunch or dinner at the Artists Café located at the entrance of the Fine Arts Building; and a $12 flat rate parking special at the adjacent Grant Park South garage when showing your ticket for “The Sleeping Beauty.”

    Plainfield Dance Academy’s presentation of “The Sleeping Beauty” features a lavish set and costumes, a company of 50 dancers including students, ages 8-18, and professional dancers of international renown such as Arionel Vargas with choreography by Altin Naska and Olena Nalyvaiko after Marius Petipa. Music for “The Sleeping Beauty” was composed by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky.

    After a rigorous February audition, three students from Plainfield Dance Academy were selected to perform feature leading roles in this production. They include 16-year old Naperville dancers Rachel Kelly and Jubilation Wang in the roles of Princess Aurora and the Lilac Fairy and 17-year old Shelby Vennekotter of Lockport as Carabosse.

    First presented at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty remains the best example of narrative ballet theater. As this timeless story unfolds, viewers come to believe in fairies who can magically soften a curse, thereby rescuing all goodness from evil, and in a hero united with his true love.

    “The visual images of movement, the sumptuous music and the story works together to create a powerful and emotional experience,” said Altin Naska, artistic director of Plainfield Dance Academy. “This is an ageless story for all ages to enjoy!”
