Ballet Premiere: 12 Dancing Princesses
Introducing the USA premiere of the 2-act Ballet “12 Dancing Princesses“. On stage At San Diego’s newest and most advanced The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center in La Jolla on 12 PM and 5 PM on June 2, 2019. The choreography was conceived by Ms. Egle Spokaite and Z.
The plot loosely follows the brother Grimms’ tale:
“Twelve princesses, each more beautiful than the last, sleep in twelve beds in the same room. Every night, their doors are securely locked by their father. But in the morning, their dancing shoes are found to be worn through as if they had been dancing all night. The king, perplexed, asks his daughters to explain, but they refuse. The king then promises his kingdom and each daughter to any man who can discover the princesses’ midnight secret within three days and three nights, but those who fail within the set time limit will be sentenced to death.”
