The 50th anniversary season would not be complete without a signature Ben Stevenson production. A lavish production that premiered in 1990, Stevenson’s The Sleeping Beauty is recognized as one of the supreme achievements of classical ballet. His is an exquisite interpretation of the classic French fairytale by Charles Perrault: a beautiful princess is cursed by an evil fairy, and doomed to sleep for a hundred years – only to be awakened by the kiss of the handsome prince who loves her. Stunning costumes and spectacular sets by Desmond Heeley help make the production as magical as the story it tells.
