Sleeping Beauty ballet to be staged in Sidmouth
Sidmouth’s theatre welcomes professional ballet company for first time
A PROFESSIONAL ballet company will perform for the first time in Sidmouth this April.
Ballet Theatre UK will stage The Sleeping Beauty for one night only at Manor Pavilion Theatre on Monday, April 16, at 7.30pm, as part of a spring tour of a dramatic new production of this ballet.
This internationally acclaimed company, with music director Christopher Moore, will offer striking stage sets, elegant costumes and Tchaikovsky’s memorable score to tell the story of this much-loved fairy tale of Princess Aurora, cursed by the wicked Fairy Carabosse to prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die on her 16th birthday.
When the Lilac Fairy counters the spell so the princess sleeps for 100 years, only a true love’s kiss can awaken her.
