Introduction and prices

Whether you come to it as a perennial favourite or as a
first-time discovery, The Sleeping Beauty brings together all of
the appeal of classical ballet in one great work. There is the
timeless fairy story of the young princess, the wicked witch
Carabosse, a century of sleep and the awakening kiss of a handsome
prince. There is spectacle in the court scenes, a wealth of dances
for the corps de ballet and wonderful opportunities for the
Soloists’ skill. And there is a setting that takes its lead from
richly colourful designs by Oliver Messel.

Tchaikovsky’s great musical score. Then in 1946, when Ninette de
Valois staged it for Sadler’s Wells Ballet (later to become The
Royal Ballet), it also entered the history and heart of the
Company, and it was this re-created historic production that was
reawakened – like its heroine – for the start of the 75th
anniversary celebrations. Now the production returns to bring the
entire Company on stage in a wealth of dazzling dance and scenic
