Sleeping Beauty is a classic fairytale published by Charles Perrault. The story involves a beautiful princess, enchantment of sleep, and a handsome prince. In musical terms, it is the best of all P.I Tchaikovsky’s ballet opuses, and one of the foundations of the world ballet repertoire.
Get a glimpse of Perrault’s famous fairy tale of a girl who cuts herself on a thorn and falls asleep for one hundred years in front of your eyes in the amazingly great show, which is not only intended for classical dance lovers. A chance for all to involve in Javier Torres’s enthralling version of the National Theatre Ballet, and an opportunity to watch virtuoso artistic performances.
