The Royal Ballet will be putting on a production of Tchaikovsky's classic ballet "The Sleeping Beauty".

Tchaikovsky's score is one of the finest in all classical music. It tells the story of Princess Aurora, cursed on her christening day by the wicked fairy Carabosse. She is doomed to prick her finger on a spindle and die. But a kind fairy tempers the curse so that the Princess will instead fall asleep for 100 years -- and be woken by a handsome prince.

With its fairytale settings and glorious score, "The Sleeping Beauty" is the very essence of classical grandeur.

The Royal Ballet is a world-renowned ballet company based at the Royal Opera House. With 100 dancers it is the largest of Britain’s four major companies, and is regarded as one of the world’s greatest ballet companies.
