İstanbul State Opera and Ballet

The malevolent fairy Carabosse loses her temper upon learning she has not been invited to Princess Aurora’s baptism ceremony. She curses Aurora as a payoff: The Princess is doomed to get a needle prick injury on her sixteenth birthday, and she will thus die. The Lilac Fairy does not have the needed power to stop this curse; but she manages to change it at least: Aurora will sleep for 100 years after the needle prick, but a prince’s kiss will wake her up at the end of those 100 years.
