The Sleeping Beauty: Birmingham Royal Ballet
at Sadler's Wells
On her christening day, Princess Aurora is cursed by the wicked fairy Carabosse who predicts that one day the Princess will prick her finger on a spindle and die. But the kind Lilac Fairy tempers the curse, so the Princess will instead fall asleep for 100 years. This breath taking production by Director Laureate Sir Peter Wright features original choreography by Marius Petipa, and is set to Tchaikovsky's classic score, performed live by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia.
