Sleeping Beauty

Return to faerie news home

Sleeping Beauty is a timeless fairytale about a young girl cursed to sleep for 100 years. The story was first turned into a ballet in 1890.

This haunting new production of the ballet classic sees award-winning choreographer Matthew Bourne return to the music of Tchaikovsky to complete a trio of masterworks, which started with Nutcracker! and Swan Lake.

In this latest re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty, the story begins at heroine Aurora’s christening at a time when fairies and vampires fed the gothic imagination before fast-forwarding 100 years.

From 4 December 2012 to 26 January 2013
