The Sleeping Beauty – Live in Your Living Room

Once upon a time, in an enchanting kingdom, a princess was born.

The Sleeping Beauty is the quintessential classical ballet, and soon, Aurora will be waltzing across screens around Aotearoa.

Join us from the comfort of your living room for an evening (or morning!), with Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous orchestral score, it spills over with fairies, handsome princes and, at its heart, an enchanting princess.

A timeless classic that is perfect for all the family. Take your front row seat in the lounge, bed or wherever you choose, and experience this spectacular delight.

The fairy-tale of The Sleeping Beauty:
Aurora, a beautiful young woman, is blessed by fairies and protected from the evil beyond the castle walls until her 16th birthday when her world is shattered by the malevolent Carabosse. 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.
