Sleeping Beauty – a spectacular fairy-tale

Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians



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.



Traditionally, Russian State Ballet and Opera House returns for their annual UK tour with a vibrant and enchanting full touring ballet production. This year they are bringing to you the Mariisky State Ballet Theatre from central Russia.

Stunning choreography, sumptuous costumes and wonderful sets form the fantasy world in which the Lilac Fairy struggles against the evil Carabosse.



Outline 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.



Woken by a prince, who has battled through the Enchanted Forest to reach her, they marry at a ceremony attended by nursery rhyme characters like Puss in Boots and all the other forest creatures.

There are no scores more successful in supporting the full range of ballet than those by Tchaikovsky.

Highlights include the Famous ‘Rose Adagio’ when Princess Aurora is introduced to four princes.

This ravishing production of the Sleeping Beauty is certain to leave you refreshed, relaxed and alert. It shimmers like an exquisite dream.

The Sleeping Beauty is also a ballet that all can enjoy, even the very young.



‘A superb performance which lived up to the mystery of the charming Russian classic’ The Argus
