Study Guide: David Gonzalez’s “Sleeping Beauty”

In this decidedly modern twist on the classic tale of Sleeping Beauty, master storyteller David Gonzalez uses rhymes inspired by Dr. Seuss, music inspired by Bach’s Goldberg Variations, and captivating projected images to create a world in which the sleeping princess is a vibrant participant in her own story.

As long as David Gonzalez is around, the venerable art of storytelling is in safe hands. He has the gift of creating magical worlds and drawing his audience into them.”
—The New York Times
