First look at Matthew Bourne’s re-imagining of Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty which begins its UK Tour on 17 October 2015 in Plymouth.
The haunting new scenario is a gothic tale for all ages; the traditional tale of good vs. evil and rebirth is turned upside-down, creating a supernatural love story that even the passage of time itself cannot hinder.
The cast includes Ashley Shaw and Cordelia Braithwaite who play Aurora, Dominic North and Chris Trenfield who play Leo, Christopher Marney and Liam Mower who play Count Lilac, Adam Maskell and Tom Clark who share the twin role of Carabosse and Caradoc. King Benedict is be played by Will Bozier, Glenn Graham and Chris Trenfield and Queen Eleanor by Pia Driver, Nicole Kabera and Katie Webb.
Completing the SLEEPING BEAUTY Company are: Daniel Collins, Jack Jones, Mari Kamata, Phil King, Dominic Lamb, Dena Lague, Katy Lowenhoff, Katrina Lyndon, Kate Lyons, Andrew Monaghan, Leon Moran and Danny Reubens.
Sleeping Beauty will play an eight week Christmas season at Sadler’s Wells from Tuesday 1 December 2015 to Saturday 24 January 2016.
