Presented by the West Australian Ballet, The Sleeping Beauty is a fairy tale ballet for princes and princesses of all ages.
A timeless tale from our childhoods, The Sleeping Beauty is one of the most beloved classical ballets of all time.
The familiar story of the bewitched Princess Aurora, the fight between powerful fairies, and the adventurous Prince will fill you with joy. As the West Australian Philharmonic Orchestra bring nostalgic emotions to life, the rich costumes and sets will evoke a colourful fairy-tale world that will sweep you away to another time and place.
First performed as a ballet in St. Petersburg in 1890, the enchanting score is by Tchaikovsky, the composer of two other iconic ballets, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker and Javier Torres' joyful revision is partly based on Marius Petipa’s original choreography.
This festive ballet by West Australian Ballet will have the whole family enthralled from the beginning to end. Don’t miss an opportunity to witness Javier Torres’ classical choreography as the delightful Prince Desiré and Princess Aurora dance a pleasant Pas de Deux in their dreams, before being united by true loves first kiss. Coming to Perth this November you can witness this happily ever after on stage at His Majesty’s Theatre.
