English Youth Ballet - The Sleeping Beauty
Fri 25 Apr
Sat 26 Apr 2014
In November we sought 100 male and female dancers to take part in English Youth Ballet's production of The Sleeping Beauty at the Grand Opera House, hundreds came to audition. These young stars will take to the stage on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 April to bring this enchanting story to life.
English Youth Ballet’s production has been updated from the original production and is set in the year 1896. When Aurora pricks her finger on her sixteenth birthday in 1912, instead of the original woodland and nymphs vision scene she is innovatively put in a cryogenic state, taken to the Arctic, looked after by the Cryonites (ice fairies) and later discovered by a royal artic explorer.
