|Next production: The Sleeping Beauty|
Princess Aurora is born into a magical world where mortals mix with the fairies of the enchanted forest at the royal baby’s christening. A jealous fairy fallen from grace casts a curse which means that Aurora will, on her 16th birthday, prick her finger and die, and while The Lilac Fairy saves the innocent child by softening the curse, Aurora falls into an enchanted hundred-year slumber from which she can only be woken by the kiss of her true love.
Featuring breathtaking choreography, lavish sets and costumes and Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score, performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra, The Sleeping Beauty will be bringing a little magic to the winter months – let Scottish Ballet cast a spell on you!
