The Sleeping Beauty
Royal New Zealand Ballet presents the Ryman Healthcare Season of The Sleeping Beauty
…in an enchanted kingdom, a princess was born. Blessed by fairies, Aurora grew into a beautiful young woman, protected by everyone who loved her from the evil beyond the castle walls. On her 16th birthday, Aurora’s world was shattered by the malevolent Carabosse, but, saved from certain death by the kindly Lilac Fairy, she and her kingdom slept for a hundred years, until woken by a brave and handsome prince. Restored to life and health, Aurora and her prince ruled over the kingdom with wisdom and kindness, in a happy golden age of love and beauty.
The Sleeping Beauty is the quintessential classical ballet. The grandest of fairy tales, luxuriating in Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous orchestral score, it spills over with fairies, woodland sprites, handsome princes and, at its heart, an enchanting princess.
For Christmas 2020, we are delighted to present a magical new production, share the joy of a timeless classic with the young and young at heart this Christmas.
