Perrault’s timeless fairy tale, about a young girl cursed to sleep for one hundred years, was turned into a legendary ballet by Tchaikovsky with choreographer Marius Petipa in 1890. Matthew Bourne is offering his interpretation of the timeless Sleeping Beauty, celebrating 10 years since its premiere at Sadler’s Wells, when it became the fastest selling production in the company’s history.

Now established as a firm favourite in the New Adventures repertoire, the award-winning Sleeping Beauty has enchanted international audiences throughout the UK and across the globe.
