I have also provided links to popular recordings of the music when available at Amazon. The advantage to these links is that you can listen to samples of the music at no charge. Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Sleeping Beauty is considered by many music scholars to be the perfect romantic ballet. Disney liked Tchaikovsky's music enough to include it in its animated film.

Disney's animated effort was the studio's most ambitious to date, a widescreen spectacle boasting a gorgeous waltz-filled score adapting Tchaikovsky.
In the 14th century, the malevolent Maleficent not dissimilar to the wicked Queen in Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs taunts a king that his infant Aurora will fatally prick her finger on a spinning wheel before sundown on her 16th birthday. This, of course, would deny her a happily-ever-after with her true love.
Things almost but not quite turn out that way, thanks to the assistance of some bubbly, bumbling fairies named Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. It's not really all that much about the title character--how interesting can someone in the middle of a long nap be, anyway? Instead, those fairies carry the day, as well as, of course, good Prince Phillip, whose battle with the malevolent Maleficent in the guise of a dragon has been co-opted by any number of animated films since. See it in its original glory here. And Malificent's castle, filled with warthogs and demonic imps in a macabre dance celebrating their evil ways, manages a certain creepy grandeur.

This epic hour miniseries was a ratings bust on television Kimberly Williams is Virginia, a waitress who still lives with her janitor father John Larroquette and yearns for something exciting to happen to her.
Her wish comes true when she and her father are transported from New York City into the nine kingdoms populated by characters from fairy tales of yore. They team up with a dog who's really a prince--Wendell, grandson of Snow White--changed into canine form by the evil Queen Dianne Wiest , who plots to usurp Wendell's throne. Father, daughter, and his royal dogness are relentlessly pursued through the nine kingdoms by the Troll King Ed O'Neill and his three bumbling and horrible children, and the conflicted Wolf Scott Cohen , who is allied with the Queen but tames his inner beast and falls in love with Virginia.
The 10th Kingdom is a special effects extravaganza. There is indeed, as one character marvels, magic to behold here. But despite the Hallmark brand name and the presence of a grown-up Snow White Camryn Manheim and Cinderella Ann-Margret , bewitched animals, magic mirrors, and trolls, this is not kid's stuff. It can get scary, surprisingly violent, and quite intense; you know, just like real fairy tales.

MUSICAL: An off-Broadway hit in New York where it played an astonishingly long run for a children's musical, this show has the double advantage of action enough to excite the children and wit enough to make the occasion pleasant for adults, too.
Princess Beauty and her encounter with the Scary Fairy make wonderful theatre, as does her rescue. In the New York production, children couldn't resist screaming out warnings as the princess reached for the poisoned rose. Grenzeback, Joe. Sing Ho for a Prince or Sleeping Beauty.
Book and lyrics by Joe Grenzeback. Music by Haakon. Sing Ho for a Prince attempts to remedy this oversight by telling the story from the viewpoint of Treakle, the fairy who promised to watch over the Princess.

Homer, Frances. Sleeping Beauty of Loreland. The hubbub of wedding preparations stops as, one by one, servants and courtiers begin to slow down, nod and fall asleep. This process is reversed just as humorously as—the hundred years having passed—-the true prince awakens Princess Beauty with a kiss. Hotchner, Steve and Kathy. A Tale of Sleeping Beauty. Book and lyrics by Steve and Kathy Hotchner. Music by Bill Roser. The curse of the evil fairy is about to come to pass. Today is the day the kingdom will fall asleep forever. The mayor and the royal family can hardly manage to eat breakfast much less run the kingdom without townspeople.
A fluttery queen faints for the first of many times, and the mayor picks a doctor and nurse from the audience to pat the queen's hand and give her smelling salts. Obviously the audience's help will be needed throughout! Jonson, Marian. Beauty of the Dreaming Wood. The king and queen are informal, fun-loving parents. The pricked finger is a deliberate and dramatic act, and the basic conflict between good and evil is modern in its implications, as is the rescue of Beauty from her long sleep.
A happy bridge between contemporary life and the folk wisdom of the fairy tale. Lapine, James. Into the Woods. Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Book by James Lapine. Buy the book in paperback. Interweaving a hilarious mix of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, the Baker's Wife, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel in a multi-layered plot which ends happily in Act One, the musical then explores "happily ever after" in Act Two as previous actions come home to roost - with a vengeance!

One fairy gave her virtue, another beauty, a third riches and so on -- with everything in the world that anyone could wish for. After eleven of the fairies had presented their gifts, the thirteenth suddenly appeared.
She was angry and wanted to show her spite for not having been invited to the feast. Without hesitation she called out in a loud voice,. The guests were horrified and the Queen fell to the floor sobbing, but the twelfth fairy, whose wish was still not spoken, quietly stepped forward.
Her magic could not remove the curse, but she could soften it so she said,.
SurLaLune Fairy Tales: Modern Interpretations Sleeping Beauty
Over the years, the promises of the fairies came true -- one by one. The Princess grew to be beautiful, modest, kind and clever. Everyone who saw her could not help but love her. The King and Queen were determined to prevent the curse placed on the Princess by the spiteful fairy and sent out a command that all the spindles in the whole kingdom should be destroyed. No one in the kingdom was allowed to tell the Princess of the curse that had been placed upon her for they did not want her to worry or be sad. On the morning of her fifteenth birthday, the Princess awoke early -- excited to be another year older.
She was up so early in the morning, that she realized everyone else still slept. The Princess roamed through the halls trying to keep herself occupied until the rest of the castle awoke. She wandered about the whole place, looking at rooms and halls as she pleased and at last she came to an old tower. She climbed the narrow, winding staircase and reached a little door. A rusty key was sticking in the lock and when she turned it, the door flew open.
In a little room sat an old woman with a spindle, busily spinning her flax. The old woman was so deaf that she had never heard the King's command that all spindles should be destroyed. But she had scarcely touched the spindle when it pricked her finger. At that moment she fell upon the bed which was standing near and lay still in a deep sleep. The King, Queen and servants had all started their morning routines and right in the midst of them fell asleep too. The horses fell asleep in the stable, the dogs in the yard, the doves on the roof and the flies on the wall.
Even the fire in the hearth grew still and went to sleep. The kitchen maid, who sat with a chicken before her, ready to pluck its feathers, fell asleep. The cook was in the midst of scolding the kitchen boy for a mess he'd made but they both fell fast asleep. The wind died down and on the trees in front of the castle not a leaf stirred. Round the castle a hedge of brier roses began to grow up.
Every year it grew higher until at last nothing could be seen of the sleeping castle. There was a legend in the land about the lovely Sleeping Beauty, as the King's daughter was called, and from time to time Princes came and tried to force their way through the hedge and into the castle.
But they found it impossible for the thorns, as though they were alive, grabbed at them and would not let them through. After many years a Prince came again to the country and heard an old man tell the tale of the castle which stood behind the brier hedge and the beautiful Princess who had slept within for a hundred years.
He heard also that many Princes had tried to make it through the brier hedge but none had succeeded and many had been caught in it and died. The the young Prince said, "I am not afraid. I must go and see this Sleeping Beauty.
