Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.

Every child’s favourite fairy-tale, Sleeping Beauty is the classic story of love and innocence, mystery and magic set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score.

Traditionally, Classical Ballet and Opera House returns for their annual UK tour with a vibrant and enchanting full touring ballet production.
Stunning choreography, sumptuous costumes and wonderful sets form the fantasy world in which the Lilac Fairy struggles against the evil Carabosse.

Outline based on the fairy-tale by Charles Perrault, the Sleeping Beauty tells of the Princess Aurora, cursed at her christening by the evil Carabosse to prick her finger one day on a spindle and die.
Thanks to the timely intervention of the Lilac Fairy, she doesn’t die, but sleeps for a hundred years.
Woken by a prince, who has battled through the Enchanted Forest to reach her, they marry at a ceremony attended by nursery rhyme characters like Puss in Boots and all the other forest creatures.

There are no scores more successful in supporting the full range of ballet than those by Tchaikovsky.
Highlights include the Famous ‘Rose Adagio’ when Princess Aurora is introduced to four princes.
This ravishing production of the Sleeping Beauty is certain to leave you refreshed, relaxed and alert. It shimmers like an exquisite dream.
The Sleeping Beauty is also a ballet that all can enjoy, even the very young.

Swan Lake – a timeless ballet with exquisite dancing
(music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky)

Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians

‘This was an absolute sumptuous ballet with the most gorgeous sets and costumes I have seen in years.’ (The Central Fife Times).

Classical Ballet and Opera House is back for its annual UK tour with spellbinding, lavish, full-production touring ballet.

Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so strikingly that one can easily be mistaken for the other.
Swan Lake captures, like no other ballet, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.
A wonderful evening out, the memories of which you will cherish long after the final curtain falls.
