About Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty
Since its premiere in 2012 Matthew Bourne’s dazzling production of Sleeping Beauty has won the hearts of audiences around the world, and smashed box office records across the UK and the USA. Its run at Sadler’s Wells sold out before its first performance, and it returns this year, by popular demand, for an eight week Christmas Season.
Matthew Bourne’s haunting new scenario is a gothic romance for all ages; the traditional tale of good vs. evil and rebirth is turned upside-down, creating a supernatural love story that even the passage of time itself cannot hinder. Our story begins in 1890 at the christening of Princess Aurora, a time when fairies and vampires fed the public imagination, before moving forwards in time to the modern day, a world more mysterious than any fairy story.
Featuring spectacular designs by Olivier Award winners Lez Brotherston (Set and Costumes) and Paule Constable (Lighting). The Sound Design by Paul Groothuis takes the audience into the heart of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score in specially recorded surround sound.
Don’t miss this chance to experience a new classic in New Adventures’ growing repertoire - it might just be another 100 years before Sleeping Beauty re-awakens.
