Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty – a spectacular fairy-tale

Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky

 
After the sell-out performances of Nutcracker and Swan Lake last year, Russian National Ballet returns to the UK. Every child’s favourite fairy-tale, Sleeping Beauty is the classic story of love and innocence, mystery and magic set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score.
 
Based on the fairy-tale by Charles Perrault, the Sleeping Beauty tells of the Princess Aurora, cursed at her christening by the evil Carabosse to prick her finger one day on a spindle and die. Thanks to the timely intervention of the Lilac Fairy, she doesn’t die, but sleeps for a hundred years and is woken by a prince, who has battled through the Enchanted Forest to reach her.
Attended by nursery rhyme characters like Puss in Boots and all the other forest creatures, their marriage is certain to be a real magical highlight of the production.
 
Stunning choreography, sumptuous costumes and wonderful sets add to the spellbinding world created by the Russian National Ballet, and a wonderful evening with memories which you will cherish long after the final curtain falls.
