Danish dance legend Peter Schaufuss presents Sleeping Beauty as part of a unique Tchaikovsky Trilogy that sees Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and Nutcracker performed together for the very first time in London.
Schaufuss who has danced each of Tchaikovsky’s great works, brings together three of his best loved – Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and the Nutcracker – in a trilogy that not only emphasises Tchaikovsky’s genius but reflects the great composer’s battle with his ambivalent sexuality.
Sleeping Beauty, Tchaikovsky’s second and most romantic ballet, combines beautiful music and stunning dancing with a young girl’s transition from child to woman amidst a struggle between good and evil.
Danish superstar Alban Lendorf will dance all performances of Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty.
On Saturday 28 July the entire trilogy will be presented in a rare theatrical event with specially priced tickets available.
