Event Details

The Sleeping Beauty is the quintessential classical ballet. The grandest of fairy tales, luxuriating in Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous orchestral score, it spills over with fairies, woodland sprites, handsome princes and, at its heart, an enchanting princess. This new Sleeping Beauty will unfurl like a fragrant summer rose, with all the radiance and joy that any ballet lover, young or old, could wish for.

For Christmas 2020, the Royal New Zealand Ballet are delighted to present a magical new production by Australian choreographer Danielle Rowe, with beautiful traditional costumes designed by Spanish dancer-turned-designer Dores Andre and sets by master designer Howard C Jones, creator of the RNZB’s much-loved production of Giselle.

All the hallmarks of the fairy tale classic will feature, including the iconic Rose Adagio in Act I and a spectacular wedding celebration, with grand pas de deux, in Act III. RNZB Principal Conductor Hamish McKeich will conduct live orchestral accompaniment in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch, with a special recording for all other centres.

Share the joy of a timeless classic with the young and young at heart at Christmas.
