Enchanting ballet story
VIENNA Festival Ballet return to Torquay with their traditional, enchanting production of The Sleeping Beauty. A classic fairy tale set to Tchaikovsky's magnificent score, stunning choreography, beautiful costumes, all combine to portray the struggle between good and evil. Incensed at being snubbed at the christening of Princess Aurora, the wicked fairy Carabosse lays a curse on the child, proclaiming that she will one day pierce her finger – and die. But the Lilac Fairy intervenes, and when the fateful day arrives, the Princess and the entire palace instead fall into a deep sleep until a century later, when Prince Florimund is guided to the castle by the Lilac Fairy.
You can see the show at the Princess Theatre on March 15, from 7.30pm. Ticket details on 0844 8713023.
