The Mermaid of Zennor- a Cornish Premiere and The Sleeping Beauty (Aurora’s Wedding)
This year, Duchy Ballet presents two completely new dance choreographies based on two ancient fairy tales. One has its origins in Cornwall and the other in France but both belong in the folk memory with appeal to all generations.
Mermaid of Zennor
With an original score composed by local musician, David Frost, and choreography by Lucy Graham. The Mermaid of Zennor will be working her magic on the audience in this danced interpretation of her intriguing story. Many discoveries will be made as the Mermaid’s story unfolds both on land and beneath the sea.
The Sleeping Beauty (Aurora’s Wedding)
Duchy Ballet’s talented young dancers will dance alongside guest artists trained at the Bolshoi Ballet in this glittering production performed to Tchaikovsky’s music . Fairytale characters and fabulous jewels celebrate the wedding of Aurora and her handsome Prince after the jealous wicked fairy, Carabosse, is defeated by the ever-watchful Lilac Fairy.
