Standard: £17, Concessions: £15
Ballet Theatre UK’s spectacular production, set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious music with stunning classical choreography, by the Artistic Director, Christopher Moore, reawakens the magic of the world’s favourite fairy tale.
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, Princess Aurora lived in an enchanted castle where fairies bestowed her with gifts of beauty, temperament, purity, joy and generosity. The wicked Fairy Carabosse places a curse on Aurora – to prick her finger on a spinning wheel on her 16th birthday… and die! The beautiful and kind Lilac Fairy casts a spell to counter the curse so that instead of dying Aurora fell asleep for a hundred years. Only the touch of true love’s kiss could awaken her and undo the evil spell…
