Fall under the spell of Kenneth MacMillan’s fairy-tale classic.
The malevolent Fairy Carabosse curses Princess Aurora to 100 years’ slumber, by a single prick of her finger on her 16th birthday. Doomed by fate, only a Prince’s sweet kiss can break the spell and awaken the sleeping beauty.
The bewitching and dark fairy-tale is brought to life in Kenneth MacMillan’s exquisite production; “a masterclass in classical style” (The Guardian), with “some of the most ravishing steps in the 19th century repertory”.
Visually stunning with Peter Farmer’s sumptuous set, and elaborate costumes by Nicholas Georgiadas, this gorgeously classical production features Tchaikovsky’s ravishing score played live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
This revival coincides with the recent anniversary of MacMillan’s death, and follows the Company’s performances of MacMillan’s masterpiece Song of the Earth in the autumn/winter.
