The Australian Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty
Fairies, a prince and a spell-shattering kiss: don’t miss the world premiere of David McAllister’s The Sleeping Beauty in cinemas. This highly anticipated new production by the Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet takes history’s most loved fairy tale into the modern age, with lavish sets and costumes by Gabriela Tylesova and never-seen-before staging, designs and choreography. In a supernatural world of good and evil, Princess Aurora becomes cursed by a sorcerer on her sixteenth birthday, but by some fast thinking by The Lilac Fairy she falls into a deep sleep and is saved from death. One day, a lonely Prince searches for his true love and awakens the princess with a kiss. Be swept into a world of magical fairies and bluebirds with Aurora and her Prince, as they dance their way through rose gardens and Imperial Courts, to Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score to celebrate their love. Don’t miss the moment when this majestic Beauty opens her eyes for the very first time.
