Sleeping Beauty: Matthew Bourne's New Adventures
New Adventures’ 25th Birthday culminates with the world premiere of Matthew Bourne’s latest re-imagining of a ballet classic.
Sleeping Beauty sees Bourne return to the music of Tchaikovsky to complete the trio of ballet masterworks that started with Nutcracker! and the international smash hit, Swan Lake.
This timeless fairy tale, about a young girl cursed to sleep for 100 years, was turned into a legendary ballet in 1890. We meet our heroine, Aurora, at her Christening, when fairies and vampires fed the gothic imagination, before the story moves forward a century to the modern day.
Matthew Bourne’s haunting new production is a Gothic Romance for all ages; a supernatural love story that even the passage of time cannot hinder.
Matthew Bourne's New Adventures is the UK's premier contemporary dance/theatre touring company. Its repertory includes some of the most successful dance productions of the last two decades.
Matthew Bourne is widely hailed as the UK's most popular and successful Choreographer/ Director. He is the creator of the world's longest running ballet production, a five - time Olivier Award winner, and the only British director to have won the Tony Award for both Best Choreographer and Best Director of a Musical.
