Overview

Sleeping Beauty is choreographer Matthew Bourne’s latest re-imagining of an iconic and beloved ballet classic. Perrault’s timeless fairy tale about Aurora, a young girl cursed to sleep for 100 years, was turned into a legendary ballet by Tchaikovsky and choreographer, Marius Petipa, in 1890. Using this period as a starting point, the production moves from height of the Fin-de-Siecle period when fairies, vampires and decadent opulence fed the gothic imagination, before moving on to the rigid Edwardian period, a nostalgic era of croquet on the lawn and long summer afternoons. As Aurora awakens from her slumber, she finds herself in the modern day, a world more mysterious than in any fairy story. This haunting new version is a gothic tale for all ages; a traditional tale of good vs. evil with a supernatural love story, spanning decades, at its heart.
