Sleeping Beauty coming to Dubai Opera


The classic ballet show Sleeping Beauty is coming to Dubai Opera in April next year.

One touch of a spindle, the curse of a wicked fairy, and a beautiful princess falls into a deep, enchanted sleep which can only be broken by a kiss from a prince is the timeless story of one of the most grand ballets ever created.



First premiered in St. Petersburg in 1890, Sleeping Beauty is brought to life by the National Ballet of Ukraine celebrating their 150th anniversary this year with a major international world tour,

accompanied by full live symphony orchestra and an array of 18th-century-style stunning costumes, gowns and wigs for the traveling company of 42 dancers.

The choreography combines classical techniques with original dancing methods including signature grace of movements ‘en pointe’ that create the impression of the dancers floating over the stage, a technique from traditional Russian ballet beloved by audiences the world over.

Dubai Opera’s chief executive, Jasper Hope, said: “Sleeping Beauty is a classic ballet, perfect for the entire family and anyone longing to be mesmerised by a fantastic and beautiful production of this ever-popular fairy tale – there are just four performances so book early.”

The show will have four performances in Dubai – April 26 at 2pm and 8pm  and April 27 at 2pm and 8pm.

Tickets for Sleeping Beauty start from AED 250 and go on sale at 12pm on 16 October 2018 at www.dubaiopera.com and all Virgin Megastores in the UAE with a special early-bird discount of 20% on top 3 seating categories available until 30 October 2018.



There’s also a special 50 percent discount for children below the age of 12 with tickets starting from AED 125.
