RNZB Sleeping Beauty


About The Sleeping Beauty

The Royal New Zealand Ballet is back on tour with a magical new version of The Sleeping Beauty. The grandest of fairy tales, luxuriating in Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous orchestral score, it spills over with fairies, woodland sprites, handsome princes and, at its heart, an enchanting princess.

Enjoy beautiful traditional costumes designed by the RNZB’s own Donna Jefferis and sets by master designer Howard C Jones, creator of the RNZB’s much-loved production of Giselle.

All the hallmarks of the fairy tale classic will feature, including the iconic Rose Adagio in Act I and a spectacular wedding celebration, with grand pas de deux, in Act III.

RNZB Principal Conductor Hamish McKeich will conduct live orchestral performances in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland.

Share the joy of a timeless classic with the young and young at heart this Christmas.
