The Sleeping Beauty : Scottish Ballet

Empire Theatre

Choreography  Ashley Page
Music  Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Design  Antony McDonald

The creative team behind Cinderella and The Nutcracker presents a spellbinding re-telling of treasured fairytale The Sleeping Beauty.  

Princess Aurora is born into a magical world where mortals mix with the fairies of the enchanted forest.  Cursed by a jealous fairy fallen from grace, Aurora falls into an enchanted hundred-year slumber from which she can only be woken by true love's kiss.

Liberally sprinkled with surprising twists and delicious wit, this magnificent version of the much-loved story features spectacular choreography, lavish sets and costumes, and Tchaikovsky's magnificent score, performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.  The Sleeping Beauty will be bringing a little magic to the winter months - let Scottish Ballet cast a spell on you. 

All performances have been completed
