The Sleeping Beauty: a classical treat

The Sleeping Beauty BRB


Birmingham Royal Ballet presents one of the world’s best loved ballets this autumn when its production of The Sleeping Beauty graces the stage at Birmingham Hippodrome.

On her christening day, Princess Aurora is cursed by the wicked fairy Carabosse – one day, the princess will prick her finger on a spindle and die. But the kind Lilac Fairy tempers the curse so the princess will instead fall asleep for 100 years.

With a classical score by Tchaikovsky and original choreography by Marius Petipa, The Sleeping Beauty is considered one of the greatest ballets from  Imperial Russia. This thrilling production is by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s former  director Sir Peter Wright, creator of the company’s popular production of  The Nutcracker. With its romantic finale packed with every fairytale  character imaginable, The Sleeping Beauty is as engaging now as when she first fell asleep, over a hundred years ago.

The production promises to be a spectacular treat for seasoned lovers of ballet and also those new to classical dance.

Hotel La Tour has a limited number of top price tickets available as part of a Stay and Dine package for you to enjoy the show and enjoy a luxury overnight stay on Friday 11 October.

For £240, two people stay in a city double or twin room, see the show, have £40 credit towards food and beverage in the hotel, plus breakfast at the hotel’s Aalto Restaurant the following morning.
