About Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty

New Adventures’ 25th birthday culminates with the world premiere of Matthew Bourne’s latest re-imagining of a ballet classic.

Sleeping Beauty sees Bourne return to the music of Tchaikovsky to complete the trio of ballet masterworks that started with Nutcracker! and the international smash hit, Swan Lake.

This timeless fairy tale, about a young girl cursed to sleep for 100 years, was turned into a legendary ballet in 1890. We meet our heroine, Aurora, at her Christening, when fairies and vampires fed the gothic imagination, before the story moves forward a century to the modern day. Featuring designs by Olivier Award-winners Lez Brotherston (set and costumes), Paule Constable (lighting) with sound design by Paul Groothuis, which will take the audience into the heart of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score in specially recorded surround sound.

Matthew Bourne’s haunting new production is a sensational gothic romance; a supernatural love story that even the passage of time cannot thwart.

Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty Customer Reviews

Absolutely incredible!! I had a seat in the restricted view area but that made no difference to my experience. Was a great show with fantastic atmosphere and all the stewards were polite and welcoming. I would recommend any of Mr Bourne's productions and would also recommend saddlers theatre. *THUMBS UP*

An amazing production. It had myself and my two grandchildren, 5 and 6, both boys, spellbound. The story was brought to life in such a dynamic and creative way- sets, costumes fabulous and the dancing to Tchaikovsky's score was out of this world. The Lilac Fairy was incredible and the Gohhic take was perfect. Thank you. I'm going back to see it again !
