Following a critically acclaimed world premiere and sell-out seasons across the country, David McAllister’s spectacular production of The Sleeping Beauty will premiere in Brisbane in 2017.

Be swept into a world of fairies and bluebirds, nymphs and roses - an enchanting fairytale ballet with lavish sets and costumes by Gabriela Tylesova.

At her christening, Princess Aurora is cursed by the angry fairy Carabosse, who was left off the invitation list! On her 16th birthday, she will fall asleep and slumber until she's woken by true love's kiss...

Set to Tchaikovsky's sublime score and filled with storybook charm, The Sleeping Beauty will win your heart.
