New Adventures celebrates its 25th birthday with a reimagining of the famous fairytale. Read More >

New Adventures’ 25th birthday culminates with the world premiere of Matthew Bourne’s latest re-imagining of a ballet classic.

Sleeping Beauty
sees Bourne return to the music of Tchaikovsky to complete the trio of ballet masterworks that started with Nutcracker! and the international smash hit, Swan Lake.

This timeless fairy tale, about a young girl cursed to sleep for 100 years, was turned into a legendary ballet in 1890. We meet our heroine, Aurora, at her Christening, when fairies and vampires fed the gothic imagination, before the story moves forward a century to the modern day.

Matthew Bourne’s haunting new production is a gothic romance; a supernatural love story that even the passage of time cannot hinder.
