The Sleeping Beauty is arguably the peak moment of classical ballet, and we’re so excited that our Artistic Director David McAllister is bringing a new production to our stages in 2015. Here are five reasons why you should be excited too.
Fairies, princes, storybook characters, visions, a curse and a kiss! Our new production of The Sleeping Beauty will have all the enchantment of this age-old tale.
Tchaikovsky’s most complex and majestic ballet score has a frisson in every bar.
David McAllister brings his wealth of experience as a former principal artist and an artistic director to The Sleeping Beauty, a ballet that entranced him as a young boy.
Award-winning designer Gabriela Tylesova will realise David McAllister’s vision for a fresh and exquisite Beauty with a timeless, heritage look.
The Australian Ballet last performed The Sleeping Beauty in 2009, so our new production will harness the star power of the company as a whole new generation of dancers tackle iconic moments like the Rose Adage, the vision scene, the fairies’ variations and the Bluebird Pas de deux.
The Sleeping Beauty will have its world premiere in September 2015 as part of our Melbourne season, before travelling to Perth in October and Sydney in November. Ballets as exciting as this one sell out fast! Make sure you don’t miss out by purchasing a Season Package, on sale now. Perth tickets go on sale in early 2015.
