Sleeping Beauty description

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.

Age restrictions

No under 5s admitted. Some scenes may be unsuitable for younger children (with the gothic, vampire theme, it is possible that some scenes may be a bit dark or scary for them).

Review: MATTHEW BOURNE’S SLEEPING BEAUTY at Sadler's Wells Theatre

by Phil Willmott | Friday, December 11 2015, 21:39

Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty It’s hard to put into words quite how much I love this production. Celebrated choreographer, Matthew Bourne, who transformed the ballet SWAN LAKE into a modern West End and Broadway hit when he re-imagined the swans as sexy, topless bird-thugs has now turned his attention to SLEEPING BEAUTY. He has taken the notoriously thin plot, traditionally staged as a series of technical dance exercises and given it wit, depth and psychological insight. The result is stunning and utterly satisfying on every level.
