Sleeping Beauty is a timeless fairytale about a young girl cursed to sleep for 100 years. The story was first turned into a ballet in 1890.
This haunting production of the ballet classic, first premiered in 2012, sees award-winning choreographer Matthew Bourne return to the music of Tchaikovsky to complete a trio of masterworks, which started with Nutcracker! and Swan Lake.
In this latest re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty, the story begins at heroine Aurora's christening at a time when fairies and vampires fed the gothic imagination before fast-forwarding 100 years.
Featuring spectacular designs by Olivier Award winners Lez Brotherston and Paule Constable, the production is making a popular return to London's Sadler's Wells for an eight-week run over Christmas.
