Since 2009, the Oil Region Ballet (ORB) has been producing lively ballet productions. Deborah Femovich, ORB’s executive and artistic director, takes beloved fairytales and spins the storyline, merging traditional with new plot twists and adventures. Combined choreographic efforts with Taryn Frey Misner, assistant artistic director since 2011, the duo take on the challenge of bringing new life to classic themes. The 2017 season will be no different. The classic “Sleepy Beauty” leaps into a new era; one where Aurora isn’t fully asleep but rather she finds herself cursed with dropping into naps at the sound of chiming bells.
