Matthew Bourne's haunting new production is a gothic romance and a supernatural love story that even the passage of time cannot hinder. Tchaikovsky's magnificent music reawakens the magic of a timeless fairy tale in an enchanted world of castles and curses, forests and fairies.
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, our heroine Princess Aurora, who lived in an enchanted castle where fairies bestowed her with gifts of beauty, temperament, purity, joy, and generosity. A spell is cast and the young Aurora falls asleep for 100 years. Only the touch of true love's kiss could awaken her and undo the evil spell...
Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty features designs by Olivier Award-winners Lez Brotherston (set and costumes), lighting by Paule Constable, and Sound Design by Paul Groothuis. Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty will take the audience into the heart of Tchaikovsky's glorious score in specially recorded surround sound.
Scheduled for December 2012.
