A superb performance which lived up to the mystery of the charming Russian classic

- The Argus

Sleeping Beauty is the classic story of love and innocence, mystery and magic set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score.

Based on the classic fairytale by Charles Perrault, 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.

This ravishing production of  Sleeping Beauty shimmers like an exquisite dream and can be enjoyed by everyone, including children.

Sleeping Beauty features the Mariisky State Ballet Theatre from central Russia, backed by a 30-piece live orchestra.
