Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty – A Gothic Romance 0  

Posted in London Reporter, Nightlife

New Adventures’ 25th Birthday culminates with the world premiere of Matthew Bourne’s latest re-imagining of a ballet classic.

Sleeping Beauty sees Bourne return to the music of Tchaikovsky to complete the trio of ballet masterworks that started with Nutcracker! and the international smash hit, Swan Lake.

Sleeping Beauty

Our story begins in 1890 at the Christening of Princess Aurora, a time when fairies and vampires fed the gothic imagination, before moving forward in time to the modern day.

Featuring designs by Olivier Award winners Lez Brotherston (Set and Costumes),  Paule Constable (Lighting) with Sound Design by Paul Groothuis, which will take the audience into the heart of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score in specially recorded surround sound.

Matthew Bourne’s haunting new production is a Gothic Romance for all ages; a supernatural love story that even the passage of time cannot hinder.


‘The undisputed king of dance theatre’



‘The great showman of British dance, with an instinctive understanding of what audiences want’



‘Demolishing conventions, bestriding art forms from ballet to musical comedy to film, Bourne’s work isn’t just high-brow or low-brow. It’s all-brow’
