Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty

Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty

At Sadler's Wells

Price from € 86.70

Sleeping Beauty sees Bourne return to the music of Tchaikovsky to complete the trio of ballet masterworks that started with Nutcracker! and the international smash hit, Swan Lake.  This timeless fairy tale, about a young girl cursed to sleep for 100 years, was turned into a legendary ballet in 1890. We meet our heroine, Aurora, at her Christening, when fairies and vampires fed the gothic imagination, before the story moves forward a century to the modern day. Featuring designs by Olivier Award-winners Lez Brotherston (set and costumes), Paule Constable (lighting) with sound design by Paul Groothuis, which will take the audience into the heart of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score in specially recorded surround sound. Matthew Bourne’s haunting new production is a sensational gothic romance; a supernatural love story that even the passage of time cannot thwart.
