The Sleeping Beauty

Adelaide audiences will be enchanted by a world of elegant courtiers, charming fairies and colourful storybook characters when The Sleeping Beauty makes its South Australian debut in 2018, following sell-out seasons in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

The Sleeping Beauty

David McAllister’s widely acclaimed production is complemented by the exquisite detail of the sumptuous sets and costumes dreamed up by award-winning designer Gabriela Tylesova. The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra play Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s music, one of the great ballet scores of all time. The Sleeping Beauty will awaken at the Adelaide Festival Centre from 6 to 12 July.

This magnificent production by The Australian Ballet’s artistic director tells the beloved story of Princess Aurora, who pricks her finger on a spindle and falls into a deep sleep, which can only be broken by true love’s kiss. McAllister’s interpretation remains faithful to the spirit of the original choreography by the 19th-century master Marius Petipa. Audiences will be thrilled by the famously challenging balances of Princess Aurora’s Rose Adage, her romantic wedding grand pas de deux with the Prince and the lively variations of the couple’s storybook friends.


When: 6-12 July. 

Where: Adelaide Festival Centre.
