Birmingham Royal Ballet’s The Sleeping Beauty

  • Opening Night: 13 February 2018

The curse of a wicked fairy, one touch of a spindle, and a beautiful princess falls into a deep, enchanted sleep which can only be broken by a kiss from a prince. The Sleeping Beauty is transformed into one of the grandest ballets ever created, with a classical score by Tchaikovsky and original choreography  by Marius Petipa.

Enter the opulent world of Imperial Russian ballet, with its marvellous mixture of virtuoso dance, fairytale characters and dazzling spectacle that has delighted audiences for over a hundred years. With live music from the acclaimed Royal Ballet Sinfonia, The Sleeping Beauty is an enchanting experience for all the family.

All performances feature live music from the Royal Ballet Sinfonia conducted for these performances Koen Kessels, Paul Murphy and Philip Ellis.
