The story as told by Basile
Giovan Battista Basile gathered, between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, some of the most ancient and famous novels of the Italian narrative tradition, writing the collection of fairy tales The Cunto De Li Cunti. Part of this collection is the oldest version of that Sleeping Beauty that then turned into the fable we all know today.
The ballet brings to the stage the Sleeping Beauty of Basile, a princess from Southern Italy who did not prick herself with the spindle but was bitten by the tarantula.

The sets provide well six scene changes and the dancers will dress historic tailoring clothes: the show is really taken care of to the smallest detail to give back the beauty, the charm and the magic of a timeless fairy tale still able to fascinate young and old.
