Sleeping Beauty is one of the most beloved ballets of all time. The richly colourful fairy-tale world enthrals everyone from young children to adults.

The familiar story about the bewitched princess Aurora, the good and evil fairies, and the adventurous prince truly comes into its own as a ballet. The stunning costumes and sets evoke a richly colourful fairy-tale world, which will enthrall the entire audience from young children to adults.

Sleeping Beauty was first performed as a ballet in St. Petersburg in 1890. It is no wonder that it has maintained its popularity until today. The enchanting score is by Peter Tchaikovsky, the composer of two other iconic ballets, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. Javier Torres’s joyful revision for the Finnish National Ballet is partly based on Marius Petipa’s original choreography.
