Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty
Choreographer Matthew Bourne's haunting new scenario is a gothic tale for all ages. The traditional story of good vs evil and rebirth is turned upside down, creating a supernatural love story across the decades that even the passage of time itself cannot hinder. Perrault's timeless fairy tale about a young girl cursed to sleep for one hundred years has been turned into a supernatural tale of vampires, fairies and decadent gothic opulence. Yet in the end, young love finally triumphs over all as Aurora is rescued by her one true prince.
