On her christening day Princess Aurora is cursed by the wicked fairy Carabosse: 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 until Prince Désiré breaks Carabosse’s wicked spell. With a classical score by Tchaikovsky, a new redaction of Petipa’s choreography by Thomas Edur and fantastic design by Peter Docherty, the ballet will offer a visual feast to all lovers of magic and fairy-tales. Charles Perrault is known as the creator of many popular fairy tales, including “Cinderella”, “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Puss in Boots”. Many of these characters will appear in the last act of the ballet. “The Sleeping Beauty” is the second of Tchaikovsky’s three ballets and is widely regarded as his finest ballet score, making it a staple at many theatres all over the world.
