A Thousand Tales, a new ballet production that promises to bring your favourite childhood tales to life, will premiere at Dubai Opera for the first time on January 6 and 7, 2023.
Presenting an original narrative inspired by various childhood literary classics, including Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Aladdin, and many more, A Thousand Tales boasts original choreographed routines from the celebrated Francesco Ventriglia, who is a graduate of the La Scala Ballet School, former soloist at the La Scala Theatre Ballet, and the co-founder and Artistic Director of the Sydney Choreographic Centre.
The ballet is set to music composed by the acclaimed contemporary composer Alexey Shor and is based on a new libretto written by Ventriglia himself. Audiences are invited to travel along on a magical adventure within this fantasy world, which features a series of stunning costumes and exquisite set decorations designed by the award-winning Roberta Guidi di Bagno.
Premiered by SAMIT Event Group, A Thousand Tales follows the White Rabbit from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as he goes on a quest through the different fairy tale realms in service of the Prince from Cinderella, attempting to find the true owner of a golden shoe dropped by a mysterious unknown woman who stole the Prince’s heart.
