Little Swan Lake, an introductory version of Swan Lake intended for children, has been running with great success for years. So it is time for a second chapter that will turn the concept into a series. In the 2022/23 season, the show titled Little Sleeping Beauty will make its way to the stage, with which the OPERA wishes to engage children in the magical world of ballet as early as possible. This time the young ones, as ballet students or audience, can get to know the story of Sleeping Beauty and the music of Tchaikovsky. In the children’s production Little Sleeping Beauty a narrator prepares the story that is to be told in the special language of ballet on stage, where students of the Hungarian National Ballet Institute can familiarize themselves with the process of creating theatre, ballet and shows in a professional  setting, alongside professional partners, and they can practise their art “for real”. This also gives opportunity for parents to gain more understanding of their children’s activities. The text of the narration was written by Dorottya Szendrődy, the dance history and etiquette teacher of the Ballet Institute. Little Sleeping Beauty, if not in such detail as the original Sleeping Beauty ballet, covers the entire plot from beginning to end.
