Cursed by a wicked fairy, a beautiful princess pricks her finger and falls into a deep sleep that can only be broken by true love’s kiss.
The Sleeping Beauty has been delighting audiences for well over a hundred years, sprinkling ballet magic on this favourite childhood story and its cast of familiar characters. And all wrapped up with sparkling virtuoso dance from BRB’s brilliant dancers, fairy-tale characters, dazzling spectacle, and Tchaikovsky’s glorious music played live by the acclaimed
Royal Ballet Sinfonia.
BRB’s beautiful production was created by Sir Peter Wright, the genius behind the Company’s famous The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.
An enchanting experience for all the family. Book early to secure the best seats!

Join BRB this World Ballet Day for a stream of a masterclass with Dame Darcey Bussell at 8pm on Wednesday 1st November. Dame Darcey will coach Company dancers Yu Kurihara and Haoliang Feng in the leading roles from one of the most technically challenging classical ballets, The Sleeping Beauty.
Dame Darcey started her professional career dancing with Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet (as BRB was known before its move to Birmingham) before being appointed The Royal Ballet’s youngest-ever Principal dancer, where she appeared as Aurora in four different productions of The Sleeping Beauty.
Whether you have been to a ballet before or not, this is the perfect opportunity to see one of the world’s greatest ballerinas and former Strictly Come Dancing judges as she coaches the next generation of dancers.
BRB will also stream the world premiere of a new choreographed piece Axios by Principal Lachlan Monaghan at 5pm, which showcases the classical skills of BRB’s exemplary female dancers.
We hope you will join us as we celebrate the magic of ballet!
