About The Sleeping Beauty

The treat of a lifetime...

Birmingham Post

The Sleeping Beauty has been delighting audiences for well over a hundred years, sprinkling ballet magic on this favourite childhood story and its cast of familiar characters. And all wrapped up with sparkling virtuoso dance from BRB's brilliant dancers, fairy-tale characters, dazzling spectacle, and Tchaikovsky's glorious music played live by the acclaimed Royal Ballet Sinfonia.

BRB's beautiful production was created by Sir Peter Wright, the genius behind the Company’s famous TheNutcracker and Swan Lake.

An enchanting experience for all the family. Book early to secure the best seats!

The UK tour of The Sleeping Beauty is generously sponsored by Charles Stanley Wealth Managers

Running time 2 hrs 50 mins including two intervals.
