Modern interpretation of fairytale “Sleeping Beauty”

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 2009-2010 Target FamilyFun Series with the world premiere of David Gonzalez’s “Sleeping Beauty,” March 14, at 2 p.m.

Commissioned by Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts, this new interpretation of the classic fairy tale combines Gonzalez’s consummate storytelling with live and electronic music, dance, image projections and exquisite lighting to create a magical multimedia world in which a beautiful princess is awakened by true love’s kiss.

The inspiration for the piece came from two unlikely sources: Johann Sebastian Bach and Dr. Seuss.

Upcoming Target FamilyFun Series events include a concert by the Dirty Sock Funtime Band (April 11) and Tap Kids (April 25). All tickets for FamilyFun performances are $6 and are held in the Walt Whitman Theatre at Brooklyn College, 2900 Campus Road, Brooklyn. Shows run approximately one hour.
