King Florestan and Queen are celebrating the christening of their daughter, Princess Aurora.
The court is waiting for the appearance of the King and the Queen. Catalabutte, the Master
of Ceremonies, is revising the guest list. The feast begins. The Lilac Fairy, the godmother of
the Princess, appears surrounded by good fairies.
Frightened servants herald the arrival of the evil Fairy Carabosse, who hasn`t been invited by
mistake of Catalabutte. King and Queen are worried expecting the worst.
Enraged Carabosse escorted by her monstrous entourage arrives. How did they dare to forget
her? Carabosse willing to revenge predicts that Princess Aurora will become the most beautiful
and the smartest of all the princesses but once she will prick her finger with a needle and die.
The Lilac Fairy alleviates the prophecy of Carabosse. Princess Aurora shall not die, as
Carabosse wished but will fall in a deep sleep and shall be awakened by a young Prince
enchanted by the sleeping beauty.

Aurora. She is nice to all of them, ready to dance with everyone but she doesn`t favour any of

takes the needle from the old lady and starts playing and dancing with it. Suddenly she pricks
her finger and falls senseless. The old lady is the Fairy Carabosse. She is triumphant.
The Lilac Fairy alleviates the prophecy of Carabosse : Princess Aurora shall not die but fall
asleep for one hundred years. And everybody in the kingdom will fall asleep after her. In one
hundred years the Princess will be awakened and the magic condemnation will lose its power.
