Since its premiere in 2012 Matthew Bourne's dazzling production of Sleeping Beauty has won the hearts of audiences around the world, and smashed box office records across the UK and the USA. Its initial run at Sadler's Wells sold out before its first performance.
Now by popular demand, Matthew Bourne's New Adventures Sleeping Beauty returns for an eight week Christmas Season.
Bourne's haunting new scenario is a gothic romance for all ages; the traditional tale of good vs. evil and rebirth is turned upside-down, creating a supernatural love story that even the passage of time itself cannot hinder.
Sleeping Beauty begins in 1890 at the christening of Princess Aurora, a time when fairies and vampires fed the public imagination, before moving forwards in time to the modern day, a world more mysterious than any fairy story!
Featuring spectacular designs by Olivier Award winners Lez Brotherston (set and costumes) and Paule Constable (lighting). The sound design by Paul Groothuis takes the audience into the heart of Tchaikovsky's magnificent score in specially recorded surround sound.
Don't miss this chance to experience a new classic in New Adventures' growing repertoire, which includes the groundbreaking productions The Car Man, Edward Scissorhands, Lord Of The Flies, Swan Lake, and Cinderella.
It might just be another 100 years before Sleeping Beauty re-awakens... At Sadler's Wells Theatre from 1 December 2015 until 24 January 2016, book your Sleeping Beauty tickets today!
