The Sleeping Beauty will be performed at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton from 31 January to 3 February 2018. Tickets range from £12.00 to £49.50. The Birmingham Royal Ballet production of The Sleeping Beauty is a delight to behold and a major highlight on the Southampton entertainment calendar.

“Sleeping Beauty” was originally written by Charles Perrault (1628 – 1703), a French author and member of the Académie Française. Perrault famously contributed many written works including ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Cinderella’, ‘Puss in Boots’ and ‘The Sleeping Beauty’. His incredible ability to captivate the imagination through skilful storytelling is the foundation of the Disney animation films which we know and love today.

The Production

The Sleeping Beauty tells the classic story of the princess who falls into a deep, enchanted sleep after a wicked fairy curses her with the touch of a spindle. The curse can be broken only by a kiss from a prince.
The classic score of Tchaikovsky beautifully enhances the performance by The Birmingham Royal Ballet company. We invite you to enter the opulent world of Imperial Russian ballet, with its marvellous mixture of virtuoso dance, fairy tale characters and dazzling spectacle that has delighted audiences for over a hundred years.
