"King Florestan the XIVth declares a grand christening ceremony to be held in honor of the birth of his daughter Princess Aurora. An entourage of all the fairies in the kingdom is invited to bestow gifts on the new-born. As the fairies are happily granting gifts of beauty, generosity, grace, song and temperament, they are suddenly interrupted by the sudden presence of the evil fairy Carabosse, who is furious at the King's failure to invite her to the ceremony. With spite and rage, Carabosse declares her curse on Princess Aurora: she will one day prick her finger and die. The Lilac Fairy, fortunately, has not granted her gift to the Princess. She acknowledges that Carabosse's power is immense and she cannot completely reverse the curse. However, she declares, although the Princess will prick her finger, the Princess will not die, but instead sleep for 100 years. The Princess will only be awoken by the kiss of a Prince"--Wikipedia (July 2006).

Set in sunny Spain, Don Quixote has always been popular in icy Russia. Choreographed by Mikhail Baryshnikov after Petipa and Gorsky for American Ballet Theatre, it is again a pretext for marvelous dancing. The plot is simple: in Barcelona, young Kitri and her lover Basilio must outwit her father, who wants her to marry the rich Gamache. Kitri's incidental protector is Don Quixote, who sees the feminine ideal in all the women he meets. The path of the plotting lovers travels through a tavern, a gypsy camp, a windmill attack, a fake suicide, and finally a festive wedding. Baryshnikov both pays homage to and revitalizes one of the most popular and joyful ballets in the surviving Russian imperial ballet's repertory.
