Experience the magic of The Sleeping Beauty ballet with this enchanting giveaway

Experience the exhilaration and beauty of live performance once again, and luxuriate in Tchaikovsky’s iconic orchestral score with The Sleeping Beauty, danced by the Royal New Zealand Ballet.

The ever-popular Christmas season sees RNZB performing the beloved production from 29th October to 12th December throughout the country, from Invercargill to Auckland.

Led by RNZB Artistic Director Patricia Barker, the creative team includes New Zealand costume designer Donna Jefferis and American scenic designer Howard C. Jones, and is set to be a dynamic reimagining of the classic ballet.

“We considered our production of this beautiful, enchanting story from
all angles — from the original ballet, to the Disney story, and even as a Netflix-style compelling drama with storytelling and characters at its heart,” says Patricia Barker. “The result is a bold new production with all the brilliance, grandeur and beauty of the beloved classical ballet.”

To celebrate this year’s season of The Sleeping Beauty, we have a double pass to give away for one of the Auckland Aotea Centre shows on Saturday 5th December at 7.30pm.
