I have been to several Ballets now and thoroughly enjoyed them all but this version of Sleeping Beauty was breathtaking. The scenery was beautiful, costumes were stunning, music wonderful and the dancers were Amazing. A must see for all Ballet enthusiasts.

A fantastic evening at the ballet. Fairytale sets, a wonderful orchestra and amazing dancing made a great night. Even if you've never been to the ballet - use this as your first experience. Mesmerising performances of grace and stamina with some lovely comic touches. A...More
