Once upon a time there lived a king and queen who wanted nothing more than to have a child. At last a daughter was born, and their sorrow was turned to joy. The king gave a christening feast so grand that the like of it had never been known. He invited all the fairies in the kingdom to come to the christening as godmothers. The fairies christen Princess Aurora with gifts suited for a princess: grace, joy, a musical voice, generosity, a vivacious temperament and beauty. But just before the Lilac Fairy can bless Aurora with her gift, Carabosse arrives in a rage at being overlooked.
Carabosse bestows a curse on Aurora: on her 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on a spindle and die. The whole court is horrified. However, Lilac Fairy steps forward, while she cannot undo Carabosse’s curse, she weaves a counter spell: the Princess will not die, but will fall into a deep sleep. When a Prince who truly loves her wakes her with a kiss, the spell will be broken. Join the villagers and special guests to watch as the fairy tale unfolds and Princess Aurora falls asleep only to be awaken by true love's kiss.
