Birmingham Royal Ballet returns to Sadler’s Wells with two contrasting evenings: classic ballet The Sleeping Beauty and three short works from Artistic Director David Bintley.
On her christening day, Princess Aurora is cursed by the wicked fairy Carabosse: one day the Princess will prick her finger on a spindle and die. But the kind Lilac Fairy tempers the curse, so the Princess will instead fall asleep until awoken by a kiss. This breathtaking production of The Sleeping Beauty by Director Laureate Sir Peter Wright features original choreography by Marius Petipa, and is set to Tchaikovsky’s classic score, performed live by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia.
