The Vision
A hundred years later a young prince is hunting in the forest. He sends his courtiers to follow the hunt while he remains alone and dreams of finding his true love. The Lilac Fairy appears and shows him a vision of the sleeping beauty. She commands this vision to dance with the Prince. When the vision disappears the Prince begs the Lilac Fairy to lead him to the sleeping beauty. The Lilac Fairy guides the Prince to the tangled wood where Aurora sleeps. He enters the palace, finds Aurora and wakes her with a kiss.
