Beautiful ballet

THERE is a treat for ballet fans in the new year when Scottish Ballet performs The Sleeping Beauty at His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen.

The creative team behind Cinderella and The Nutcracker presents a spellbinding re-telling of treasured fairytale The Sleeping Beauty from Wednesday, January 18 to Saturday, January 21.

Princess Aurora is born into a magical world where mortals mix with the fairies of the enchanted forest. Cursed by a jealous fairy fallen from grace, Aurora falls into an enchanted hundred-year slumber from which she can only be woken by true love’s kiss.

Liberally sprinkled with surprising twists and delicious wit, this magnificent version of the much-loved story features spectacular choreography, lavish sets and costumes, and Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score, performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.

The Sleeping Beauty will be bringing a little magic to the winter months – let Scottish Ballet cast a spell on you!
