An enchanting ballet experience for children aged 3 and up

Storytime Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty

A dreamy kingdom full of magical fairies, a beautiful sleeping princess and a prince searching for his true love…

50 minutes

A beautiful princess must sleep for 100 years – until woken by true love’s kiss … 

Experience all the dazzling wonder of The Sleeping Beauty in a live, interactive production created especially for children aged 3 and up. Fairies in glittering tutus, storybook characters, and a prince’s quest – all set to Tchaikovsky’s hum-along score. 

Running for under an hour, and packed with favourite characters like Red Riding Hood and Cinderella, this narrated version of The Sleeping Beauty will have both boys and girls dancing all the way home. Don’t forget to dress up in your favourite ballet-inspired outfit!
