Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty at Sadler’s Wells

Tchaikovsky‘s Sleeping Beauty is about glorious music and MacMillan’s classical choreography which reawaken the magic of the world’s favourite fairy tale in an enchanted world of castles and curses, forests and fairies.

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, Princess Aurora lived in an enchanted castle where fairies bestowed her with gifts of beauty, temperament, purity, joy, wit and generosity. The wicked Fairy Carabosse put a curse on Aurora; to prick her finger and die on her 16th birthday. The beautiful and kind Lilac Fairy cast a spell to counter the curse so that instead of dying Aurora fell asleep for a hundred years. Only the touch of true love’s kiss could awaken her and undo the evil spell.
