Details

Give children a first taste of the magical world of ballet and enjoy the classic fairy tale together, in this new version specially created for children aged three upwards.

As a baby, Princess Aurora is cursed by the evil Carabosse: on her 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die. Her godmother, the Lilac Fairy, alters the spell so Aurora will not die but will sleep for 100 years, only to be awoken by true love’s kiss.

From Aurora’s christening in the grand hall of the palace, to her jubilant wedding celebrations, the popular story comes alive on stage.

With a narrator to help the young audience follow the story, and a shortened version of Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous music, this is the perfect introduction to the beauty of ballet, and a fantastic family day out.

Performed by second-year students of English National Ballet School, English National Ballet's My First Ballet series has been enjoyed by over 290,000 people since its creation in 2012.
