Sleeping Beauty

The famous story of true love's kiss, danced to Tchaikovsky's beautiful music, and based on the original choreography.

On her christening day Princess Aurora is cursed by the wicked fairy Carabosse: one day the Princess will prick her finger on a spindle and die. But the kind Lilac Fairy tempers the curse so the Princess will instead fall asleep for 100 years until Prince Désiré will break Carabosse’s wicked spell.

With a classical score by Tchaikovsky, a new edition of Petipa’s choreography by Thomas Edur and fantastic design by Peter Docherty, the ballet will offer a visual feast to all lovers of magic and fairy-tales.

Charles Perrault, who wrote the original, created many of the most popular fairy tales, including “Cinderella”, “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Puss in Boots”. Many of these characters will appear in the last act of the ballet. “The Sleeping Beauty” is the second of Tchaikovsky’s three ballets and it is widely regarded as his finest ballet score, making it a staple ballet with many theatres all over the world.
