A REAL BEAUTY

Reality T.V. meets classical ballet and the latter wins: The stars of the CW’s Breaking Pointe have teamed up at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre through Oct. 6 to produce a dazzling and faithful version of Tchaikovsky’s sweeping and soaring three-act ballet. Adam Sklute’s staging honors the gorgeous fairy tale and even more sumptuous score. The dancing is as enchanting as the fairy tale, with a huge cast spanning the 17th and 18th centuries to depict the endurance of love despite a fairy’s curse.
