Muscat: The Carlo Colla Puppet Theatre presented their production of Tchaikovsky’s The ‘Sleeping Beauty’ at 4pm yesterday at the Royal Opera House Muscat.



The ballet is about a princess, who is cursed by a wicked fairy during the celebration of her birth.

The curse condemns the lovely little princess to die at the age of 16, but she is saved by the counter-spell of a good fairy. Instead of dying, the beautiful princess will sleep for 100 years, when she will be woken up with a kiss from a handsome prince.

With dance and spoken dialogue, Tchaikovsky’s music was poetically woven into a magical puppet show for all ages.


The creator of this show is Compagnia Marionettistica Carlo Colla & Figli, a company established by an Italian family that has been dedicated to puppet theatre since the early 19th century and is now world-renowned.

Tchaikovsky’s music was played by the Orpheus Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Alevtina Ioffe.
