With an unforgettable score by Tchaikovsky, sumptuous sets and costumes, evocative lighting and masterly storytelling, the beloved fairy tale is brought to life by the uniquely talented New Adventures company. Get ready to be transported in time from the halcyon days of the late Edwardian era through to the modern-day in this dazzling gothic romance.

"Matthew Bournes Sleeping beauty was amazing! My favourite part was the puppetry of the baby Aurora. I have no clue how to describe how much I loved it! It made it look like a real baby! The costumes and sets were perfectly designed to match each scene . The dancing was magical and special. having listened to snippets of the ballet it was incredible to hear the whole thing! You don't have to like ballet to like this! I rate it 5stars out of 5!"
