The English National Ballet and the English National Ballet School present a production of Sleeping Beauty in the ever popular My First Ballet series.
The Ballet is produced to enable the young audience to follow the story, there is a narrator and a shortened version of Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous musical score to make this a perfect introduction to the beauty of ballet, and a fantastic family day out.
The story is centred around Princess Aurora who is to be cursed by the evil Carabosse: on her 16th birthday, her godmother the Lilac Fairy alters the spell so Aurora will not die but will sleep for 100 years, only to be awoken by true love’s kiss. From Aurora’s christening in the grand hall of the palace, to her jubilant wedding celebrations, the popular fairy tale comes alive on stage.
This unique production is created by English National Ballet’s Associate Artist George Williamson and performed by second-year students from English National Ballet School.
Since its creation in 2012, 150,000 people have enjoyed the My First Ballet series.
