English National Ballet and English National Ballet School present My First Ballet: Sleeping Beauty
My First Ballet: Sleeping Beauty is an enchanting version of the fairy tale ballet created especially for children aged three upwards.
As a baby, Princess Aurora is cursed by the evil Carabosse: on her 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die. Her godmother the Lilac Fairy alters the spell so Aurora will not die but will sleep for 100 years, only to be awoken by true love’s kiss.
From Aurora’s christening in the grand hall of the palace, to her jubilant wedding celebrations, the popular fairy tale comes alive on stage.
With a narrator to help the young audience follow the story, and a shortened version of Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous music, this is the perfect introduction to the beauty of ballet, and a fantastic family day out.
This unique collaboration between English National Ballet and English National Ballet School is created by English National Ballet’s Associate Artist George Williamson and performed by second year students from English National Ballet School.
Since its creation in 2012, over 150,000 people have enjoyed our My First Ballet series.
“A pocket-sized delight”
