OVERVIEW

LA Times: Matthew Bourne reawakens 'Sleeping Beauty' with audience in mind

By Meredith Blake, Nov 17.  “NEW YORK — Matthew Bourne was standing in the bedroom of Tchaikovsky's home outside Moscow two years ago when he decided it was finally time to tackle ‘Sleeping Beauty.’” Read More online.

OPEN YOUR EYES TO A NEW BEAUTY IN THIS GOTHIC FAIRY TALE WITH A MODERN TWIST.

“This Sleeping Beauty looks set for a lengthy reign.”
The New York Times

He set the ballet world on fire and reinvigorated dance theatre with daring new spins on Nutcracker! and Swan Lake.  Now, the two-time Tony Award® and five-time Olivier Award winning choreographer sets his sights on the third and final Tchaikovsky masterwork.

Matthew Bourne (Swan Lake, Edward Scissorhands) returns to the Ahmanson, re-imagining Sleeping Beauty as a gothic romance complete with fairies and vampires, enchanting and arresting scenery and costumes: all in a fully immersive surround sound experience.

“An eye-popping achievement, magically animated.”
The Guardian, London

Bourne knows how to engage and enthrall an audience, making ardent new fans of his unique stories in dance. There won’t be any sleeping during this Beauty. Only rapturous applause.

Note: Located under "Programs and Features," Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty Education Resources is produced by Re:Bourne, the charitable-arm of Matthew Bourne's New Adventures.

Insider Tip: For the best view of this dance production in the Ahmanson Theatre, we recommend purchasing tickets in the Mezzanine.
