Dazzling take on ballet favourite

The Sleeping Beauty
The Sleeping Beauty

Ballet Theatre UK’s internationally acclaimed company of dancers bring a dazzling new production of one of the world’s favourite ballets to The Grand this weekend.

Dramatic stage sets, elegant handcrafted costumes and Tchaikovsky’s beautiful music combine to tell the story of The Sleeping Beauty, based on the much-loved fairy tale set in an enchanted world of castles and curses, forests and fairies.

Once upon a time, in a land far away, the wicked Fairy Carabosse put a curse on Princess Aurora – to prick her finger and die on her 18th birthday.

But the beautiful Lilac Fairy cast a spell to counter it so that, instead, Aurora fell asleep for a hundred years.

Only the touch of true love’s kiss could awaken her and undo the evil spell...

This company is enjoying rave reviews for its engaging and entertaining performances.

The company’s talented dancers, who have attracted five-star praise from audiences and critics alike, will delight theatregoers with a stream of exhilarating dances.

The show starts at 6pm on Sunday, September 23. Tickets are £17.50/£15.50 concessions and £10 for children.
