EXTRA INFORMATION

The Sleeping Beauty

In short
The Dutch National Ballet is presenting the Russian crown jewel The Sleeping Beauty in the version by Englishman Sir Peter Wright, who has proved himself a master in adapting the great classical ballets throughout his long career. Wright’s The Sleeping Beauty has all the glitter and style that befits a ballet originally intended for the court of the Russian tsar.

The Story
Asleep for a hundred years
The Sleeping Beauty, based on Charles Perrault’s fairytale La Belle au Bois Dormant, tells the story of Princess Aurora, who pricks her finger on a spindle on her sixteenth birthday, as foretold in the curse pronounced by the wicked fairy at her christening. The good fairy, however, manages to avert the death of the princess. Instead, she falls into a deep sleep for a hundred years, to be awoken at last by the kiss of a handsome prince.
