Fairytale Beginning

by C California Style

American Ballet Theatre …

launches its world premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s The Sleeping Beauty in Orange County (over the Big Apple) this spring, opening with Kirov-trained Diana Vishneva in the role of a high-strung Aurora opposite decidedly hunky Brazilian Marcelo Gomes as the prince. Expect a night of palpable tension—the steamy kind. March 3-8, Segerstrom Center for the Arts, 600 Town Center Dr., C.M., 714-556-2787; scfta.org.
