Spectacular sets, sumptuous costume design and breathtaking classical choreography bring one of the most traditional ballets to life. Three years in the making, The Meridian Season of The Sleeping Beauty will be the highlight of 2011.
The Sleeping Beauty is the pinnacle of the classical ballet repertoire. The Royal New Zealand Ballet has spent the last three years creating this magical version of a fairytale favourite in order to bring you our biggest production to date.
Set to Tchaikovsky’s soaring score, The Sleeping Beauty tells the timeless story of young Princess Aurora who falls prey to the evil fairy Carabosse – only a kiss from a handsome prince will break the spell and ensure her future happiness.
The Sleeping Beauty features some of the most famous and demanding choreography and, to this day, remains one of the must-see ballets of all time.
This spellbinding traditional masterpiece will take your breath away.
