Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty reawakens in 2022, celebrating 10 years since its premiere at Sadlers Wells. When it became the fastest selling production in the company’s history.
Now established as a firm favourite in the New Adventures repertoire, the award-winning “SLEEPING BEAUTY” has enchanted international audiences throughout the UK and across the globe.
Matthew Bourne said today:
“Ten years ago I fulfilled a long-held ambition to complete the trilogy of Tchaikovsky ballets following my Nutcracker! in 1992 and Swan Lake in 1995. It’s no secret that this particular ballet was a daunting task and one that I approached with trepidation. It did, however turn out to be a richly rewarding experience with the entire creative team on glorious form and, in my opinion, it remains one of New Adventures greatest achievements. I look forward to new generations of dancers rising to the varied challenges of this much loved production and bringing its magic back to audiences throughout the UK.”
