How long is My First Ballet Sleeping Beauty?

Choosing a London theatre show with the perfect runtime for your children can be a difficult task. Toddlers, especially, are often only able to pay attention to an activity for 5 to 8 minutes. But their attention span increases when they're having a blast, and that's exactly what they'll be having at this My First Ballet show. At just an hour and 30 minutes with an interval to boot, the English National Ballet's My First Ballet Sleeping Beauty is just the right duration for your child to keep them spellbound from start to finish.

What to expect from ENB's My First Ballet Sleeping Beauty?

This colourful classic fairy tale ballet comes complete with a narrator to help young audience members stay focused as they follow the magical tale of Princess Aurora, who awaits true love's first kiss to rescue her from her eternal slumber. Featuring an abridged version of Tchaikovsky's exquisitely gorgeous melodies, My First Ballet Sleeping Beauty is as enchanting as it is entertaining for both adults and children alike. Treat your children with the gift of London theatre today!

Enjoyed the show, good view from our seats. Narrator very good. Thought the performance was a bit lacklustre in parts, compared to the last one we saw, hence 4 rather than 5 stars.

My 6 year old loved the show

Cat seldon28th April

The costumes were lovely and it was beautifully executed but my 5 year old daughter and I both separately came to the conclusion that we preferred the Canterville Ghost which we’d seen at same venue a year before but which was actually danced by children ballerinas as it had more humour in it and was more engaging. Also although we paid for 2 seats in stalls we both had to sit on the same one as there was a man sat in front of us and because we were quite central it basically meant we couldn’t see at all without craning our necks as he was so close to us. I prefer theatres for kids where the seats are such that they can always see either above or between those in front. So overall I would not come again sadly.

Excellent experience for the whole family. My daughter loved it! Beautifully choreographed, wonderful set up, we will be back next year. I just wish that there is an age limit to perhaps 5 plus because too many babies/toddlers can spoilt the fun and experience for others.

Katerina Strimmenou 27th April

The narrator was amazing. The quality of ballet was not as good as last years “swan lake”. My daughter though really enjoyed it!

Kimberley Avdji26th April

I thought the performance was really amazing- very child friendly, however I think there should be an age restriction of 8 years + because the moving and talking talking of young children can distract from the show and it costs a lot of money to come. It was also a shame that not all the classic sleeping beauty songs were played. The quality of the performance and costumes were superb.

Valeria Curzio26th April

I went to see Sleep and Beauty with my reluctant son. He thought Ballet was for girls and, when he saw the majority of the spectators were girls, was a bit uneasy. When it started he could not keep his eyes off the dancers. He really love it, although complaint about noisy girls who didn't know how to behave in a theatre. The fact that there was a running commentary to explain kids what was happening was fantastic because it keep them really interested and focused on the plot. Well done!


An enchanting perforance!

Maria Barthelmy25th April

Most enjoyable! My niece loved it!

Jolanta Rzegocka25th April

Me and my 5 yo daughter enjoyed the show immensely, the story-teller was a good idea and played superbly. I think it should be more clearly explained that this is not ENB ballet, but in fact ENB School. We learned about it only when we bought the programme.While I think giving ENB students a testing ground is a good idea, I was expecting to see professional dancers onthe stage.

Violet Kizito24th April

The show was absolutely amazing

Jenny C24th April

Perfectly adapted for children, the narrator was brilliant at setting the scene and impressive with his magic tricks. My daughter was truly entranced throughout the whole performance. I hope to see more ballets adapted like this.
