(The book opens and shows the story told here.)
Narrator:
In a far away land, long ago, lived a king and his fair
queen. Many years had they longed for a child and
finally their wish was granted. A daughter was born,
and they called her Aurora. Yes, they named her after
the dawn for she filled their lives with sunshine. Then a
great holiday was proclaimed throughout the kingdom,
so that all of high or low estate might pay homage to
the infant princess. And our story begins on that most
joyful day.
(A crowd is on its way to the castle.)
Choir:
Joyfully now to our princess we come,
Bringing gifts and all good wishes too.
We pledge our loyalty anew.
Hail to the princess Aurora!
All of her subjects adore her!
Hail to the King!
Hail to the Queen!
Hail to the princess Aurora!
Health to the princess,
Wealth to the princess,
Long live the princess Aurora!
Hail Aurora!
Hail Aurora!
Health to the princess,
Wealth to the princess,
Long live the princess Aurora!
Hail to the King!
Hail to the Queen!
Hail to the princess Aurora!
Inside the castle.
Narrator:
Thus on this great and joyous day did all the kingdom
celebrate the long awaited royal birth. And good King
Stefan and his Queen made welcome their life long friend.
Announcer:
Their royal highnesses, King Hubert and prince Phillip
Narrator:
Fondly had these monarchs dreamed one day their
kingdoms to unite. Thus today would they announce
that Phillip, Hubert's son and heir to Stefan's child
would be betrothed. And so to her his gift he brought,
and looked, unknowing, on his future bride.
Announcer:
The most honored and exalted excellencies, the three
good fairies. Mistress Flora, mistress Fauna, and
mistress Merryweather.

Fairies:
(at the cradle) 
Oh, the little darling! 
(to the king) 
Your majesties...
Flora:
Each of us the child may bless with a single gift.  No more, no less.  (at the cradle) 
Little princess, my gift shall be the gift of beauty.
Choir:
One gift, beauty rare
Full of sunshine in her hair
Lips that shame the red red rose
She'll walk with springtime
Wherever she goes
Fauna:
Tiny princess, my gift shall be the gift of song.
Choir:
One gift, the gift of song
Melody her whole life long
The nightingale's her troubadour
Bringing her sweet serenade
to her door
Merryweather:
Sweet princess, my gift shall be ...
(A blow of the wind, the door of the castle swings open.  Lightning and thunder.  Maleficent appears) Flora:
Why, it's Maleficent!
Merryweather:
What does she want here?
Fauna:
Shhh!
Maleficent:
Well, quite a glittering assemblage, King Stefan.
Royalty, nobility, the gentry, and, how quaint, even the rebel. (Merryweather starts angrily starts to fly towards Maleficent but is held back by Flora) Maleficent:
I really felt quite distressed of not receiving an invitation. Merryweather:
You weren't wanted!
Maleficent:
Not wa...? Oh dear, what an awkward situation. I had hoped it was merely due to some oversight. Well, in that event I'd best be on my way. Queen:
And you're not offended, your excellency?
Maleficent:
Why no, your majesty. And to show I bear no ill will, I, too, shall bestow a gift on the child. (The fairies protect the cradle)
Maleficent:
Listen well, all of you! The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who know her. But, before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, she shall prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die. Queen:

Oh no! (takes the child in her arm)
Maleficent:
Ha, ha, ha, ha!
Stefan:
Seize that creature!
Maleficent:
Stand back you fools! 
(disappears in a flash of lightning, laughing)
Flora:
Don't despair, your majesties. Merryweather still has her gift to give. Stefan:
Then she can undo this fearful curse?
Merryweather:
Oh no, sire.
Flora:
Maleficent's powers are far too great.
Fauna:
But she can help!
Merryweather:
But ...
Fauna:
Just do your best, dear.
Flora:
Yes ...
Merryweather:...
