The Sleeping Beauty: English National Ballet (ENB)
The Sleeping Beauty reawakens the magic of the world's favourite fairy tale in an enchanted world of castles and curses, forests and fairies.
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, Princess Aurora lived in an enchanted castle where fairies bestowed her with gifts of beauty, temperament, purity, joy, wit and generosity. The wicked Fairy Carabosse put a curse on Aurora; to prick her finger and die on her 16th birthday.
The beautiful and kind Lilac Fairy cast a spell to counter the curse so that instead of dying Aurora fell asleep for a hundred years. Only the touch of true love's kiss could awaken her and undo the evil spell...
With wonderful choreography by Kenneth MacMillan, The Sleeping Beauty features some of Tchaikovsky's best-loved ballet music ever, including the Rose Adagio and the music used as Once Upon a Dream in Disney's Sleeping Beauty.
English National Ballet is one of the world's great ballet companies. The original 1950s vision for the Company - to take classical ballet of the highest quality to the widest geographical audience, at a price everyone can afford - remains the cornerstone of the Company's philosophy today.
