This [Sleeping Beauty] staging is a triumph of vivifying style... it's the finest reconstruction I've ever seen of a dance work.

Why See American Ballet Theatre - The Sleeping Beauty?

BalletDance & BalletFamily Shows

you are feeling sleepy

Prepare to be mesmerised by this wonderfully magical ballet, recounting one of our most beloved fairy-tales, that of the cursed Princess Aurora, otherwise known as The Sleeping Beauty. The first ballet scored by Tchaikovsky. Lovingly reimagined by ABT's Artist in Residence, Alexi Ratmansky, the production still retains the most treasured and iconic parts of the ballet - with a monumental twist!

The story of Sleeping Beauty

On the day of her grand christening, the Princess Aurora is admired by all in the kingdom, including a cast of fairies, ready to imbue her with the virtues she'll need in life. But one fairy is left off the guest list- the evil fairy! Furious, she bursts into the hall and curses baby Aurora, wishing her to die upon her 16th birthday, after pricking her finger on a spinning wheel. But all is not lost, the strong Lilac fairy, while not able to undo the curse, can adapt it, and instead Aurora will sleep...for 100 years...

When the time comes, the Lilac fairy bewitches the whole realm into sleep, joining Aurora in her sentence, as vines and trees grow up around the palace, hiding it from view. Finally, Aurora's saviour, Prince Desire arrives and plants on her true love's kiss, waking the Princess and kingdom just in time for a jubilant and triumphant wedding ceremony!

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
