Sleeping
Beauty – a spectacular fairy-tale

Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky

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. After
a very long break we are proud to present to you the UK Premier of this ballet
company from Moldova.

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.

A
wonderful evening out and memories which you will cherish long after the final
curtain falls
